Prosecco Rosè DOC extra dry, millesimé 2020
Welcome to one of the hottest trends for 2021: Prosecco Rosé! While it appears that two of the best categories of the summer, Prosecco and Rosé, are a natural choice, it was never allowed to mix until 2020, when the Prosecco DOC Consortium approved a new set of naming rules that allow Prosecco Rosé DOC. Fresh bottles from Veneto started hitting the shelves in early 2021. Made from most Glera white grapes, 10 to 15% of the red Pinot Nero (also known as Pinot Noir) grapes can achieve its color. All labels must bear the word "Millesimato" (which translates into "vintage") and the vintage itself, with the requirement that at least 85% of the grapes must have been harvested from that year. The result is a fresh wine with a nuanced petal pink color and a nose of white flowers, blood orange and red berries. On the palate it is refreshing and complex with inviting flavors of red fruits and citrus. Gambrinus since 1847 faithfully follows its philosophy linked to nature and sustainability, brings its experience into this new and exciting category. For the lover of all things pink and sparkling, this is your time!
