@VinoRoma tasting note for Barone Pizzini Franciacorta Rosé

hande leimer vino romaHande Leimer — left, otherwise known as “Vino Roma” — has been called Rome’s “leading wine educator” by U.S.A. Today and her guided tastings, seminars, and wine and food tours of the Eternal City are among the most popular in a crowded class of enogastronomic “sherpas” working there today.

(Click here for her site, including info on her classes and tours.)

So you can imagine our excitement when we saw her post and tasting note on the Barone Pizzini 2008 Franciacorta Rosé on her Facebook yesterday.

Here’s what she had to say about the wine:

Barone Pizzini Franciacorta Rose Brut 08 with its acidity & sparkle is the perfect counterpart to the incredible amount of fat.

The wine, we learn perusing her Facebook, was paired with “potatoes, morcilla [blood sausage], torta di casar, Turkish red pepper from the oven.”

Sounds delicious, Hande! Thank you so much!
