Whispering Angel Rosé
Whispers of Rosé

Evoke summer eternal with Whispering Angel, a blend of mostly grenache, cinsault and vermentino varieties. Whispering Angel was born in the Esclans Valley, in the heart of Provence. Provence is to rosé as Champagne is to Champagne. This dry rosé has zero sugar, great concentration and a smooth and round finish. Sipped alone or paired with food, it’s an extremely versatile wine.

If you plan to make the tomato dishes featured in this issue, a crispy, dry and light glass of this rosé pairs perfectly with high-acidity tomatoes and lower-acidity tomato-based dishes, bringing out the sweet, fresh and tart characteristics of this summer staple. Most importantly, a chilled glass provides a bit more body while preserving acidity.

If you find yourself at Sag Pizza this summer, Whispering Angel is also a perfect pairing idea for wood-fired pizza. Back in the city, pair this with L’Amico’s PeekyToe Crab Crostini, Spiced Tuna Crudo and Seafood Agnolotti.
