Prosecco Doc Rosé Brut Pizzolato, the “Pink” Sparkler Certified Organic and Vegan, Becomes Reality
November 24 – After working for years on conducting research and market analysis, producers are finally allowed to make a pink version of Prosecco. The Consortium has in fact taken into account the demands of an increasingly demanding market via the analysis of its consumption trends and acknowledging the great appeal that Rosé sparkling wine has all over the world, given that in the Prosecco territory rosé sparkling wines were already being produced.
As Leader in the production of Organic Prosecco, Pizzolato could not miss this appointment. The Prosecco DOC Rosé Brut Pizzolato, a vintage sparkler certified organic and vegan, will merge the intense aromatics and fruitiness of Glera grapes (90%) and the refined aromas and elegance of Pinot Noir (10%). Following the production regulations, the second fermentation will occur via the Martinotti/Charmat (aka tank) method for a minimum period of 60 days. Pizzolato Prosecco DOC Rosé will contain around 6-8 g/l of residual sugar and offer a persistent mousse. Bright pink in the glass, this will offer delicate scents of white flowers, apple and pear, typically found in Prosecco, combined with immediately recognizable red fruit aromas.
Pizzolato Prosecco DOC Rosé Brut will complement the existing DOC Sparkling wine line currently comprising the Prosecco DOC Brut and Prosecco DOC Extra Dry versions whose labels have recently received a makeover.
The Prosecco DOC produces approximately 500 million bottles every year and considering how fast sales of rosé wines are growing, the Consortium estimates that in the medium run Prosecco Rosé production could eventually account for 30 million bottles a year. Great expectations on this new sparkler, able to merge conviviality, versatility in food pairings, a refined and elegant taste and good companion for international dishes and ideal for every occasion to celebrate.
