This slightly unusual rosé from Piemonte, Italy, has what so many rosés are missing: texture and character. And as you’ve probably already guessed it’s a natural wine, hence the label. La Lupa is wonderfully nuanced, fruity and spicy. The wine is refreshing and yet textured. It has body and a bit of oomph is what I’m hinting at. In many ways this wine is more of a very light red than a dark rosé, if that makes any sense?
Hiding behind a spot-on label designed by Gothenburg based tattoo artist Maja-Lisa Bekken is this sparkling pét-nat dream from the urban winery Wine Mechanics (Gothenburg). Punch in the face freshness mixed with minimal natural funkyness, a wild ride compounded by berries, watermelon, peach, and blood grapefruit.
