The All New Prosecco Rose Mixed case - Pink Prosecco is finally here!
The All New Prosecco Rose Mixed case - Pink Prosecco is finally here! - The first bottles of Prosecco Rosè are finally hitting our shores and we’re delighted to introduce these two new Prosecco Rosè wines to our portfolio.
Official pink Prosecco is a development we’ve been looking forward to for years, well since 2009 actually since the introduction of regulations on the production of Prosecco.
So what are the new rules regarding pink/rose Prosecco.
- The red grapes used must be Pinot Noir (as with traditional Prosecco the white grapes used are Glera)
- Must be aged for a minimum of two months
- It must be a vintage wine (millesimato), while white Prosecco is non-vintage
Tony Brown 'Master of Wine' explains – “It means what’s in the bottle is a premium wine. For a product that has been talked about for so long the DOC (Denominazione d’Origine Controllata, one of the two Prosecco regulatory bodies) have wanted the wines to live up to the hype.
These regulations ensure consistency in production, with the use of Pinot Noir meaning the wines are produced using quality fruit. The extended aging also ensures we can be confident the wine we’re delivering is of a high standard.”
This six bottle case contains three bottles of each of the following two wines:
- Montresor Prosecco Rose Extra Dry - Gentle berry and citrus aromas. The palate has lightly honeyed, apple characters with a touch of redcurrant. Fresh acidity and a delicate mousse. Pair with chicken, fish dishes and salads - but perfect with or without food.
- Fontessa Prosecco Rose - The inaugural Prosecco Rosé - Fontessa has an appealing balance of delicate berry fruit, bright acidity and a refreshing mousse. A fresh and delicately fruity Prosecco Rosé with red berry and floral aromas. Lively on the palate with ripe strawberry and raspberry notes and a clean, refreshing finish.
