Notes from the importer: Prosecco Rosé was born on October 15th 2020 when the Italian Government officially announced the release of this new DOC wine (new appellation, new wine). Before that date any sparkling rosé wine unproperly called Prosecco was just a fraud. By definition of the law, Prosecco Rosé can only be produced in Veneto and Friuli Region of Italy and by using a minimum of 85% Glera grape (the official grape of regular white Prosecco), blended with Pinot Noir. No other red grapes are allowed in the production of Prosecco Rosé.

After the harvest Glera and Pinot Noir grapes are de-stemmed, soft pressed and fermented separately in stainless steel temperature-controlled tanks. After the fermentation the two wines are blended to create a rosé wine and it is left for few days at about 39° F. to “marry”. At this point the Prosecco wine is transferred into special steel vats where sugar and selected yeast are added to start the secondary fermentation. After 15/20 days the Prosecco becomes sparkling and it is ready to be bottled.

Prosecco is a friendly wine good for any occasions: to welcome friends at home, to stimulate the appetite before lunch or dinner or just to entertain friends on the side of the swimming pool! This wine is a good companion to appetizer, poultry, seafood and cheese. Best served chilled, 50° F.
