Rosé Prosecco's

The world of Rosé Prosecco is an exciting one, it’s only since May 20th, 2020 that Italy’s National Wine Committee approved the production of Rosé Prosecco, using the Glera and Pinot Noir grapes.

Even though Rosé Prosecco hasn’t been around for very long, we still have an outstanding selection to choose from, including Rosés from Villa Sandi, Montelivin and Giusti, which we will most defiantly taste very soon.

Although Rosé Prosecco is fairly new, the idea for it was first mentioned in 2009 by Polegato, a winemaker, he had this to say about the creation of Rosé Prosecco:

“I told the consortium that we should have the opportunity to make a Prosecco DOC Rosé as well,” he remembered. “But I was the only one at the time who wanted to add it to the DOC. But other producers weren’t ready at the time. Now, 11 years later, everyone wants a Prosecco DOC Rosé and everyone is waiting for one. All the great sparkling wine appellations of the world have rosé and we should have one, too. And our clients have been waiting for it as well. So it’s a big moment for me personally.”

But like anything to do with Sparkling Wine, there are regulations that include:

– The wines must be made with a min. of 85% Glera grapes and 10-15% Pinot Noir.
– The Martinotti/Charmat method must be used for the second fermentation and the wines must be aged on their lees for a minimum of 60 days.
– The wines will be classified as brut nature, brut, and extra dry.
– The colour must be a ‘brilliant, more or less intense rose hue’ and the wines must have a lingering effervescence.
– The wines must be vintage dated with the name ‘Millesimato’.
– Wineries will be allowed to sell their wines on January 1 of the year following the harvest.

Rosé Prosecco did very well at the Glass of Bubbly Awards 2021, bringing home a Trophy and several Gold Medals, the fairly new Rosé Proescco’s have hit the ground running and can only get even better, they were loved among the judges and are loved amongst those who have had the pleasure to enjoy a bottle.

Now let’s pop open the Rosé Prosecco’s themselves, see how different wineries have their own style, flavours and aromas that make each Rosé Prosecco unique.
