Another interesting pairing which we'd like you to try this scorching summer is Rosato with watermelon.
Watermelon is a summer fruit that is highly appreciated due to its water quantity and thirst-quenching properties.
Watermelon has a purifying effect, it strengthens the bones and contains just 16 calories per 100 grams. What's more, it's a refreshing, diuretic fruit, as well as being anti-inflammatory.
It contains several vitamins, potassium, phosphorus and magnesium and it's 93% water.
Watermelon contains the same pigment that colours tomatoes, i.e. lycopene, which is very important for fighting inflammation.
In addition, it contains precious minerals, which we lose through sweat, but that can be re-establised with a nice refreshing slice of watermelon.
The presence of vitamin C, and potassium in particular, has a purifying and detoxifying effect, which makes watermelon the ideal fruit to naturally hinder water retention, leg swelling and hypertension.
Watermelon is also rich in citrulline, an amino acid which assures healthy blood pressure levels and maintains the artery walls elastic. It is therefore useful in preventing hypertension and heart disease.
Children obviously also love it, due to its characteristically sweet taste.
Why pair watermelon with Rosato
Our Rosato Sei Rose is a fresh wine. It is the result of a competent use of sangiovese, canaiolo and colorino grapes and it perfectly accompanies our hot August days.
Our Rosato, while fresh and thirst-quenching, has an alcohol content of 13%. Paired with the sweetness of watermelon, its taste is enhanced, giving a feeling of completeness.
A slice of watermelon and a nice glass of Rosato Sei Rose is, without a doubt, an excellent, refreshing, reinvigorating and relaxing pairing: the perfect way to enjoy the shade of a beautiful tree on our holiday farm in the Tuscan countryside.
