Bibi Graetz, Toscana IGT (Tuscany, Italy) “Bollamatta” Rosé NV

($26, Folio Fine Wine Partners):  This label of this rosé lacks identity, so I relied on Bibi Graetz’s website, which explained that it’s a Tuscan wine made entirely from 50 to 80-year-old Sangiovese vines.  The grape variety and the age of the vines helps explain why this bubbly delivers such pleasure.  Savory notes and wild strawberry-like fruitiness make a lovely combination.   Freshness and uplifting energy allow you enjoy it before and throughout a meal.   It would be a good choice for take-out sushi or Chinese food while you’re practicing social distancing.
