NV Pisani Rose’ (Rosato) Spumante, Italy $4.99

Silverdale, WA    11% alc.    (Purchased on 11/6/14)

IMG_1854Beautiful medium ruby grapefruit color with a nice steady stream of tiny bubbles.  Looked really nice, but it took forever to begin to open (which is not a quality I expect or want in a bubbly).  Eventually showed a very slight dosage (sweetness) and flavors of strawberry and grapefruit pith with bitterness in the finish.  No discernible yeastiness/bread dough qualities.  Hardly compelling…even at five bucks…one bottle was plenty.  Just not enough character or fruit for me.  Appears to be selling for $10-$11 at regular retail.
