Prosecco Rosé D.O.C.
ROOTED AGAINST BREAST CANCER. A portion of the proceeds from each bottle purchased will support Breast Cancer research.
Bright and delicate, this Italian rosé shines with a soft hue of pink mother of pearl among lasting and fine bubbles. Aromas are driven by fruit, with notes of apple, white peach, citrus and wild strawberries balanced against floral notes of peach blossoms. The mouthfeel is refreshing with a high level of acidity cleansing the palate between each new sip.

After harvest towards the end of August, the grapes are destemmed and pressed leaving the liquid in contact with the skins for 12-16 hours to extract color and flavor before its first controlled temperature fermentation. The two wines, glera and pinot noir, are then blended and refermented according to the Martinotti Method at a controlled temperature of 59-61˚ Fahrenheit, with the refermentation process lasting two months on average.
After harvest, the grapes are gently pressed and then fermented in stainless steel tanks with the addition of selected yeasts. The second fermentation occurs with controlled temperatures to preserve the fresh aromas of the grapes. Finally, the sparkling wine is cold stabilized, filtered and bottled.
