Kreos, with its intense vivid pink color, gets its name from “Eos”, the Greek goddess of dawn, whom Homer called “the rosy-fingered goddess.” Kreos emanates a bouquet of flowers, cherries, and raspberries that are prevalent in its elegant flavor as well. It has a tangy and earthy finish, with hints of nougat which lingers on the palate.

The flavors build on the palate, beginning with a melon tone that leads to crushed strawberry and blood orange. There’s a gentle tannic grip and fresh acidity to house all the fruit, with a lick of peppery spice to add depth, while crushed cherryskins linger on the close."Grade: Best Buy

Castello Monaci Kreos Rosato comes from the heart of Italy’s rosé production region of Apulia and this 100% Negroamaro is made in the “saignée method,” which removes the juice from the skins after just enough contact to impart a rich pink color and clean berry flavor. Score: 88 Points

Date: Thursday, June 11, 2020"Vivid orange-pink. Ripe red berries on the nose and in the mouth. Fleshy and vaguely jammy, showing good depth and a lingering raspberry note on the smooth, broad finish. In a straightforward style and very easy to drink, even if it's not the last word in complexity.

It has a juicy, fruity flavor with a body that's almost as rich as a red, with a lovely floral aroma. It tastes great with summer pastas."
