Notes from the Importer: Even though this wine is a red-white blend, it doesn’t taste like crunchy, barely-there red wine. In fact, the Chardonnay is what gives the lean red fruit more flesh and texture, so that Summer Love stands out as a bottle with minimal weight, but present medium-bodied structure. You can get it cold, but then let the bottle rest on your outdoor table for a while—it’ll be even better as it opens up in the warmth of an almost-over Summer day.
