92 POINTS, Vinous: "The 2019 Bonavita Rosato is an incredibly deep ruby color, so much so that you might mistake it for a red. On the nose, I’m finding an alluring mix of crushed cherries, offset by tangerine, rose petals, and the slightest hint of exotic savory spice. On the palate, soft textures usher in a remarkably pure expression of floral-laced red fruits and minerals, as it seems to hover across the senses over a core of vibrant acidity with hints of ginger and a gentle tug of tannin. The long finish is fresh but also showing a youthful structure, leading me to believe that this might be even better if given some time to unwind in the cellar. This blend of Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, and Nocera is really quite stunning." - Eric Guido

"Bonavita is a small family-run winery that sits on the steep hills overlooking the strait of Messina and the coast of Calabria in the distance. The vineyards, surrounded by chestnut and oak trees, have belonged to the Scarfone family for almost a century, but it is only recently that the 28 years old Giovanni has decided to dedicate himself to the making of this historical wine of Sicily. The DOC Faro, one of Sicily’s oldest, takes its name from the village of Faro Superiore which was founded in ancient times by a Greek population called “Pharii” who colonized the hills of Messina and introduced agricultural practices, especially the cultivation of vines." -Supplier's notes
