Pale pink slightly orange in colour. On the nose, the Prosecco Rosé has aromas of green apple, blackberry and black currant and a delicate floral touch. On the palate is fresh, with predominant fruity notes, good flavour and persistence.
Fruit for this wine come from vineyards in Caerano di San Marco, a small municipality in the province of Treviso.The vineyard is located on a south-west facing slope at 100 meters above sea level. Soil here is clayey and rich in iron. The vines of Glera are 13 years old while the vines of Pinot Noir are 20 years old on average and all double Guyot pruned.
2020 started with favourable weather for the vines. Temperatures were in line with seasonal avarages between June and July, with an increase between July and August. Therefore, health status and quality of the grapes were good. Pinot Noir was harvested on the last days of August and Glera on the third week of September. Yields were in line with previous harvests.
Grapes are carefully selected by hand during harvest. The whole clusters are gently pressed with a pneumatic press. Then a carbonic pre maceration of 3/4 days takes place followed by a traditional red maceration for 2 days. The must is fermented in 30 to100HL stainless steel tanks.The second fermentation takes place in 30 to100HL stainless steel autoclaves. Finally, the refinement is carried out in concrete wine vessels.
Finding a Prosecco producer with a Liberty profile - control of grapes, a quality ethos, one of the best producers in the zone and a wine that offers value for money - proved almost impossible. We eventually came to the conclusion that the only solution was to make our own, with the goal of producing a real Prosecco - clean, fresh, soft, frothing, uncomplicated, gulpable and above all, affordable. We've been making these wines together with Conegliano-born Andrea Morlin since 1994. Matt Thomson works with Andrea and a grower friend in a modern, compact winery tucked into the hills of this beautiful region.
