I felt it on the breeze, that subtle change of the seasons as a breeze sent shivers through a rose bush. The last of the summer blooms, a most resplendent pale red, shook the overnight dew from their petals.

I’m not quite ready for autumn, although thoughts are turning to game dishes, baked potatoes and similar seasonal food. Before we know it the clocks will need changing and Bonfire Night will be here.

Those roses were the exact same colour as a bottle of fizz siting in my wine rack. But Nino Franco Faìve Rosé Brut Spumante is named after the “small gilded red sparks rising towards the sky from a bonfire, lightly and freely carried by the wind”. To me though the colour will always remind me of the colour of those summer roses.

Nino Franco Faìve Rosé is made from a mix of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. An aperitif wine, a glass or two whilst cooking perhaps or a wine to serve with cicchetti

This weeks Sunday Wine Shot – two for the price of one in fact – Nino Franco Faìve Rosé Brut Spumante.

    We’re thrilled to see our Faìve Rosé Brut on the Sunday Wine Shot section. (With all the correct accent marks as well). You’ve captured the colour of this sparkling wine perfectly, glowing embers, little sparks, lovely photographs. Grazie Millie.

  2. Thank you for your appreciation!!! :-))
