Prosecco Rosé Millesimato D.O.C.

Follador is also developing it, pending its launch on the market.

Rosé constitutes a significant portion of the wine market, particularly abroad. They appeal to large groups of consumers, especially in Anglo-Saxon countries and in the United States, but their popularity is growing everywhere. According to a survey commissioned by the Protection Consortium and conducted by Nomisma’s Wine Monitor; 72% of Italians would like a Prosecco Rosé, while 78% of Americans and 93% of the British feel the same.

In the wake of these encouraging results, an update to the consortium’s guidelines will soon be carried out which will make it possible to produce and market a Prosecco Rosé Millesimato that will be able to bear the D.O.C. still excluded from this type of product.

Up until now, Prosecco D.O.C. could only be vinified with the Glera grape; but these new rules introduce the possibility of adding a percentage of Pinot Noir; specifically, between 10 and 15%. This will give the wine its characteristic pink hue. The residual sugar will go from Extra Brut to Extra Dry, in order to satisfy the widest possible audience of admirers.

In the Follador range there are already two Rosé: a Cuvée Brut, in the line of classic sparkling wines, from 84% Glera and 16% Incrocio Manzoni Moscato rosa grapes, and the sparkling “Vita Rosa” with twine binding, produced with black and white grapes selected exclusively from the Veneto Region.

The new Prosecco Rosé Millesimato, like all our products, will be vinified according to the Gianfranco Follador™️ method, with the second fermentation in autoclave according to the Martinotti method (Charmat) followed by regular fermentation and a long stop on the lees at 0°.

The cellars will be able to start the sparkling vinificatin process for this new type of Prosecco starting August 1st. Distribution on the Italian market will begin as soon as the technical and bureaucratic process, sanctioned by the publication in the Official Gazette, has been successfully completed, and finally the many connoisseurs of rosé will have the pleasure of tasting it.

La scelta di sigillare le bottiglie con lo spago non deriva da una specifica motivazione di carattere tecnico, ma dall’intento di perpetuare una tradizione secolare che risale alle origini stesse del Prosecco frizzante.
