Wine Review–Incanto RoseComments : 2 Posted in : Robaso, Rose Wine on by : The Gourmez
Wine: Incanto Rose
This sparkling rose has no nose to speak of. It is moderately fizzy and paltry in personality. I would liken it to a sparkling water with lemon-lime flavoring and a dash of berry. It would work as a very light accompaniment for a meal but definitely not for drinking on its own.

Wine Novice @ The Wino That I Know
There is a slight fuity aroma scent to this wine, but there is very little of a fruity taste. This is a very dry wine, and I was excited about the effervescent quality of it. It was actually overpowering and I think the wine would have been better whithout it. The hubs really seemed to enjoy this wine, but it’s not my cup of tea.
Rating: 1 Star…Might be nice if you prefer really dry wines, though.

A mild nose, with just a bit of candied apple.
This is a slightly carbonated wine – it has a regular cork that requires a corkscrew, but it makes a pop noise when you open it. There’s no real stream of bubbles – just some hanging on the side of the glass. The bubbles give it a very interesting mouthfeel – it’s not quite fizzy, but you definitely feel it. Red apple and a few toasty notes and that’s it. If it didn’t have the fizz, I’d probably call this quite boring but it adds a layer to make it interesting.
I get some strawberry seeds on the finsh.
This is an extremely simple wine – very little is going on – but the bubbles give it a bit of depth, and there’s nothing funky or unpleasant going on. For this pricepoint, that’s not bad at all.
