Vinification Details: The production area for this wine is within the Prosecco DOC area, 80-100 meters above sea level with alluvial and clay soils. The grapes for the pinot noir were harvested at the end of August and Glera mid-September. The Pinot Noir has one day of maceration and a subsequent soft pressing and the Glera has a soft pressing, both followed by fermentation in temperature controlled tanks. The vinification is in stainless steel with three months Charmat Method secondary fermentation.
History: Pink Prosecco must still be producd from a majority of white Glera grapes, but it will also include 10-15% of the red Pinot Nero (aka Pinot Noir) variety of grapes to achieve its colour, which will be a “pink more or less intense, shining, and with a persistent foam. Though it’s long been in the pipeline, the production of Prosecco DOC rose was only approved by the Italian Ministry of Agriculture, Food & Forestry in May 2020, and by EU officials in late October.
Regional Information: Prosecco comes from Northeast Italy, though its heartland is a small region in the Veneto called Conegliano Valdobbiadene. Vineyards generally are found on southern facing slopes with good drainage and gentle winds that dry the grapes out after their daily shower.
