JANCIS ROBINSON MW says no to both red and white this week, insisting that sometimes only pink will do. 'There is something terribly compelling about ros on a summer's day.' Pink wines might not be taken as seriously as red and white, but there are still several styles to choose between and Robinson strives to make the decision easier. She comes up with six categories: three ros styles and three chilled reds. Ross are divided into 'Pretty Pinks', 'Pink Pinots' and 'Clarete Style', while the chillable reds are Beaujolais, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc. One of her 'Pretty Pink' favourites is 2005 Cavalchina Chiaretto Bardolino (5.99 or 4.79 if you buy two; Majestic).
