Zago Prosecco Brut Rosé 2019

Veneto, ItalyZago has been producing Prosecco since the mid 19th century, and this, a Rosé Prosecco, is one of the newer additions to the portfolio, with the appellation laws officially recognizing the category in spring 2020. This is a blend of sustainably sourced glera with 15% pinot nero, fermented separately, and then blended for second ferment in charmat tanks and 3 months' rest. This is refreshingly dry (Brut), with only 5 g/L dosage. Summer strawberries, wild raspberries, pomegranate is held bright with a crisp cranberry acidity, lifting the lighter frizzante palate to a snappy finish. Quite a smart Prosecco rosé, and enjoyable now. I wish so that more Prosecco would follow this drier lead.Tasted: 01 May 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 29.99 BCLS Select Producer: ZagoDistributors: World Wine Synergy Inc.
