Balletto’s 2016 rose of pinot noir is an improvement over the 2014 version we last saw, offering a more restrained berry fruit profile that is a nice foil to some lively acidity, with ample lemon and grapefruit character, particularly on the fun and aromatic finish. Drinks more like a crisp white than a lushly fruit-driven rose.
