Rosehip. Hibiscus. Chalk. This Negroamaro/Primitivo blend is finer and lighter than you’d expect from a pink wine made from two of Puglia’s irrepressible red varieties. The fresh style of Mezzarosa is welcome in Manduria’s warm climate, and in ours. Serve it with whole fried rockfish garnished with purple basil, raita, and dabs of chili paste. — JM
