Review: 2017 Mazzei Belguardo Rose Toscana IGT
Mazzei’s Belguardo is written stylistically as “Belgvardo” on the label, so don’t get confused if you’re having trouble finding — or pronouncing — the wine. This Tuscan rose — made in Maremma – is 50% sangiovese and 50% syrah. The wine is aromatic and fresh, its lavender and lilac notes pairing interestingly with notes of brown sugar and nutmeg. Fruit is dialed back a bit here — more apricot than strawberry — with hints of lemon peel emerging on the finish.
