It is a representative product of the terroir, where production of rosé sparkling wines has been already present since years. Today, the achievement of the Prosecco Rosé appellation confirms the high-quality standard and elegance of the rosé sparkling wines produced here.
The color is bright light pink, with fine and persistent perlage. The flavor is really fresh and floral, with an explosion of freshness and nice body on the palate, thanks to the sapidity and the taste-olfactory persistence of the fruity notes of pear, pomegranate and lychee.
