Masi Modello Rosato Delle Venezie

2010 Masi Modello Rosato Delle Venezie, $10.95. LCBO#587725.

We started our trial of “All in a Day’s” 6 summer wines with a rosé when my friend Eve popped by last week for an impromptu dinner with us. Since she loves wine like I do, and isn’t afraid to give pink wine a chance, it seemed like the right audience for this bottle.

All 3 of us had trouble identifying much on the nose or in the taste, no specific fruit jumped out in this wine. The description says berries and plums, but I couldn’t come up with that. The wine is fairly dry with a slightly tart finish; it’s quite fresh and was enjoyable in the heat. It stood up on its own and with a meal of roast chicken and veggies, and would also be good with fish or a salad.

There’s not much to say about this one…it’s perfectly acceptable, but didn’t excite me. I wish I had something more glowing to say about the first of the summer wines. The price is right and it is well suited to a hot summer night, but will I buy it again? Most likely not.

Overall, I give this wine 7.5/10 for taste and 3.5/5 for value.
