It’s pink Prosecco time baby! One of the first Rosé Proseccos to hit our shores, this is the variety tipped to be the next big thing.
With the rise and rise of Rosé wine and Prosecco the geniuses at Prosecco D.O.C Consortium in Italy decided to change their strict Prosecco appellation rules to allow for Rosé style bubbles to be legally labelled as Rosé Prosecco.
Prosecco Rosé must be made with at least 85% Glera grapes and the rest Pinot Noir, all grown within the specific boundaries of the region. At least 85% of grapes have to come from a single vintage and aged for 60 days, traditional Prosecco is 30 days.
There’s certainly plenty of hype around the release of Rosé Prosecco…
