Montelliana Prosecco Rosé DOC “Meliora” Brut
WHY WE LOVE IT
- This is a brand new item for Montelliana and this is GRAPE’S first Prosécco Rosé in our portfolio.
- Produced in a Brut style, making this a dry Prosécco.
Varietal Composition: Glera and Pinot Noir
Elaboration: Rosé wine method with soft pressing, Charmat fermentation method
Tasting Notes: Provencal pink in color, this Millesimato (vintage) Charmat-method sparkling wine has fine and persistent bubbles. With a good structure, the nose is delicate, with floral aromas and hints of red fruit. In the mouth it is fresh and elegant, with pleasant returns of fruity aromas.
At the foot of Coilli Asolani stands Cantina Montelliana, a cooperative of 400 growers focused on the production of Prosecco, and a known regional leader in the Asolo category. The company was founded in the mid 1950’s, and member holdings amount to 650 hectares of vineyard land. This is one of the most impressive cooperatives we’ve come across in Italy in terms of the engagement and passion of its member/growers, and also in terms of the unusually high quality of its finished wines.
