Newest addition to Mezzacorona Portfolio
New York (June 6, 2019) – Mezzacorona, the leading Italian wine producer announces the launch of its sparkling rosé Mezza di Mezzacorona Rosé to its award-winning portfolio. In time for the summer season, Mezza di Mezzacorona Rosé will be available in U.S. markets starting this June.
Made from estate-grown grapes in the foothills of the Italian Alps, Mezza di Mezzacorona Rosé is the brand’s first foray into Charmat-method sparkling rosé. The grapes are harvested and selected by hand at the beginning of September to keep the full potential of the aromatic expression of the vines. The color remains delicate which allows the final wine to have a soft rosy hue that is lively and brilliant over time. On the nose, hints of mountain rose, fresh cherry, peach and bergamot. The flavor is intense with a very delicate bubbles and a mousse that continues for a long time.
“Sparkling rosé is just another example of how Mezzacorona responds to consumer demands and trends in the industry,” says Barbara Darra, Global Marketing Manager for Gruppo Mezzacorona. “Research, development, and innovation are vital to our growth strategy, along with a robust marketing and digital presence to help share our story and understand what our consumers are looking for, like sustainability and connection to territory and tradition.”
