Rotisserie Chicken Flatbread and Rosato Floats #ItalianFWT

Welcome to #ItalianFWT (Food, wine, travel) August edition where we are discussing everything Rosato!  Everything from the palest pink to a hot pink/purple Lambrusco, you will see so many great varieties!  Let's get learning.

First, let me thank our host, Lauren from the Swirling Dervish for setting up our learning today.  Read her introduction post here and learn the basics of Rosato wine.  This map from Wine Folly shows you where you can find where Rosato made in Italy.

I chose to feature a spumante sparkling Rosato called Foss Marai Roos Brut Vino Supmante Rosato. I chose it because it came in these adorable small bottles that I thought would be a pretty table setting.  I was right. Sooo cute!

Wine Facts:

Foss Marai
Champagne & Sparkling Wine
Sparkling Wine, Rose
Cherry, Floral

For us, the wine was a bit overly sweet, with a strong wild cherry flavor.  The "sparkling" was not very sparkling, but that could have been the bottle size issue.  It did go very well with our pairing of Rotisserie Chicken Flatbread, however, and at the end, we tried it as a dessert, can't wait to share that with you!

Our flatbread was made with sour cream as the "sauce" which with the sweetness of the wine, made a wonderful counterbalance.  The red onions and bacon also paired well, as did the delicious rotisserie chicken.

Our best surprise though, was to take the leftover wine and pour it over real vanilla ice cream.  This Rosato Float was delicious and so fun!  I used my smallest scoop, about the size of a melon baller, and dropped the ice cream into the wine.  I poured the rest of the wine over the ice cream.  Using the straw, I stirred a couple of times and then drank the liquid and used a spoon to get the ice cream.  Delicious.

    1. Wine floats?! You are fabulous. And that flatbread looks delicious. I can't wait to try it.

    2. Omgoodness...you may have just changed me world with that wine float! I love the glass you used too! And your flatbread looks amazing! My mouth is watering!

    3. I think I'm going to skip breakfast, lunch and dinner and just have this Rosato ice cream float. Also great idea to pair your Rosato with Rotisserie Chicken Flatbread which I want to make for my family.

    4. Your flatbread looks delicious. The float? Hmmm...interesting.

    5. Wine floats! I think you're onto something here. If we pair wine and cheese, why not wine (with some residual sugar) and ice cream?

    6. What a perfect summer treat - the flatbread looks delicious and the wine floats? Well, who doesn't need one of those about now?

    7. The idea of the rosé float is so fun! How delightful!

    8. Your Rotisserie Chicken Flatbread looks great Terri! Brava for your creativity with the Rose float! Cin-cin!

    9. What a fun idea with the wine float. And as a fan of Naan, i will have to try this recipe.
