Le Rughe Prosecco Rosé 2020

Veneto, ItalyFrom one of the oldest wineries in Valdobbiadene-Conegliano, the heartland of Prosecco, Le Rughe was established in 1960 by Gaetano Sandro, and today his family works to continue his vision. This organic, vintage dated rosé prosecco (an exciting new appellation) blends 85% glera with 15% pinot nero from their Tenuta Cor estate, located in Belluno, at the foothills of the Dolomites at 400m. This was finished with 6 g/L RS. Pouring a peach hue, this draws cherry yogurt, red apple, strawberry blossoms along a medium palate, finishing with a fine dusting of spice and an evident stony buzz. This lacks some energy, and while I love the drier profile, I would love to see the acidity dial amped just a bit to make this excel.Tasted: 03 November 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 21.00 private wine shops Producer: Le RugheDistributors: Cru & Terroir
