There are multiple specifications to meet in order to obtain the name “Prosecco DOC Rosé”. For example, Glera and Pinot Nero are the only permitted grape varieties, and as for the Pinot Nero just 10 to 15% is allowed. The colour should be pink, more or less intense, shining, and with a persistent foam. The fizz can only be produced in two styles: Brut Nature and Extra Dry. Also, the label will have to include the word “Millesimato”.
Prosecco DOC Rosé Brut Millesimato by Villa Sandi is composed of Glera and Pinot Nero produced in the north-eastern regions of Italy (Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia).
The vinification of this fizzy wine is quite a long process. The whole white grapes are introduced into the pneumatic press, and the must obtained from their soft pressing, after a first decanting, is placed in the temperature-controlled tanks where it remains until its use for the production of the Prosecco; the red grapes are sent to the winemakers after crushing, to undergo a light maceration at a temperature of 22 to 23°C so that there is an extraction of colour and few tannins while enhancing the aromas.
Prosecco DOC Rosé by Villa Sandi reveals an elegant pink colour with coppery reflections.
