Introducing Prosecco Rosè
Bubbles aren’t just for New Years!
The world’s leading wine markets have been long awaiting the release of Prosecco DOC Rosè. As of January 2021, the DOC gave its stamp of approval making Prosecco Rosè official. It has the taste of Prosecco with freshness, floral notes and fruit. The category is set to take off and that’s because Prosecco DOC Rosè is all about quality.
The “fizz” must follow strict criteria to earn the title of Prosecco Rosè. Producers must follow specific rules around production. The grapes must come from specific geographical regions that have been approved by the Italian government. For Prosecco Rosè to be designated DOC it must be made with at least 85% Grela grapes with the balance coming from Pinot Noir. Sparkling rosé, on the other hand, can be made with different grapes from different regions.
Prosecco Rosè must also be fermented for at least 60 days in stainless steel tanks. Sparkling wine, in some cases, need only a week to ferment. The longer fermentation brings layers of flavour, a vibrant colour and silky bubbles to the wine.
And…. don’t forget the paper ribbon across the foil – it’s a government label that certifies DOC status.
