The honey and strawberry aromas alluringly mesmerize the senses. Don’t let Rosanebbia’s salmon color fool you. It can be a patio sipper for sure. However, it is made from the nebbiolo grape, lending it an extra level of complexity that makes it an excellent wine with food.

Nebbiolo is the signature grape of the Piedmont region of northern Italy. Pace’s Vino Rosato ($14.99) presents vibrant acidity with a spectacularly soft finish.

A most enjoyable accompaniment to any Easter dinner.

Buy it at West Point Market or order a bottle at Vaccaro’s Trattoria.

No need to leave the Piedmont if rosé isn’t your first choice. Colombo’s 2013 Apertura Pinot Nero ($25.99) is a pinot noir lover’s dream.

It’s an off-the-beaten-path selection for sure with unusual flavors of stewed raspberry and dried cherry. The silky soft finish seals the deal. It delivers like a high-end California pinot without the sticker shock. Great with grilled pork chops and garlic smashed potatoes.

Buy it at West Point Market or order a bottle for dinner at Vaccaro’s Trattoria and Treno Ristorante.
