I’m totally crushing on Prosecco Rosé!! It has only hit the Aussie shores in the last few months and from the couple I’ve tried, I’m loving it! And I’m talking about the Italian stuff, not the Aussie stuff 😉
Making Prosecco Rosé was only allowed in Italy from 2020. Up until this point, only one grape variety was allowed in the production of Prosecco and that was the white grape Glera. Since a law was passed last year, they now allowed to add 10-15% Pinot Noir. Plus there are a few other regulations too.
A big thank you to Calneggia Family Vineyards who kindly sent us this bottle to sample. We enjoyed it this time last week with pizza in the park. It was an utterly blissful way to kick of the long weekend!

What is tastes like to me
I am pretty sure I was in love right from the first drop into my glass. It’s such a pretty coral colour. On the nose, think fresh raspberries and strawberries with a wonderful refreshing lick of lemon peel. While in the mouth it’s wonderfully dry with those red berry and citrus notes flowing through. Easy drinking, crisp and darn right yummy.
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it. All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
