Pink is the new green? It's true that vinho verde translates as \"green wine,\" and it's also true that Vinho Verde makes rosé wines, such as this snazzy little number that's made entirely with the Espadeiro grape. Look for notions of ripe citrus and garden herbs and bright acidity, and serve lightly chilled with grilled seafood or summer salads. Price $ 13.95
