Tony Aspler’s Weekly Wine Pick: Masi Modello delle Venezie Rosato, 2011
By Tony Aspler
A dry rosé is the perfect summer wine. Not only does it look good in the glass but it’s refreshing, too. This is a versatile wine to match with food — and it’s inexpensive. This blend of Refosco and Raboso is light cherry in colour, with a nose of strawberries and a taste of candied raspberry that finishes fresh and dry. Chill it lightly before opening.
Food match: cold cuts or charcuterie
$10.90, LCBO #587725
