About
Aglianico, native to Campania in Italy, is grown here on pretty much my favourite bit of dirt at Kersbrook, in the northern Adelaide Hills. Kersbrook is one of the warmest parts of the Hills and so lends itself to these Southern Italian varieties so well.

About the Wine

This Aglianico Rosato is the perfect accompaniment to any picnic or lunch.

The fruit is grown in Kersbrook, Adelaide Hills, specifically for the purposes of producing Rosato. It has a beautiful colour and is wonderfully aromatic; it almost feels like it's batting its eyes at you from the glass. As the Rosato/Rosé revolution marches on it Australia, it's wines like this from interesting varieties that are really cutting through.

Complex, cheeky and impossible not to love, the La Prova Rosato should be on the hit-list of any fan of interesting and classy pink wines.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Have it cold and it’s all cherry blossom, cinnamon notes and a wicked kick of turkish delight and rose water. As it warms up, some of the creamier characters start to shine with a soft pomegranate and and savoury herbal feel. It’s pretty complex if you feel like looking deeper into it but if you just want some easy drinking fun, it's on point for that too. - Different Drop Wine Team

The Wine Front

"Aglianico is a good vibe for rosato/rose. This is a great case in point. It’s quite a sophisticated, understated style here. Pale salmon colour, very savoury bouquet set to oatmeal, brown sugar, light clove-cinnamon spice and dried berry scents. Palate has more of the savouriness but a depth of light red berry flavour that satisfies those seeking more fruit character. Fine tannins shape the wine too. Good stuff." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine.
