Perlage Afra Prosecco Rosé 2020

Veneto, ItalyThe Perlage story started in 1985, when the seven Nardi brothers, encouraged by their father Tiziano and mother Afra, decided to embark on a journey of discovery of converting the family’s vineyards to organic agriculture, starting with the Riva Moretta vineyard, in the heart of the Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG Prosecco Superiore area, in Northeastern Italy’s Veneto region. All wines are certified organic (for more than 30 years), and vegan, and Perlage was the first winery to produce a certified biodynamic Prosecco. This off-dry pink Prosecco is based on Glera, with 10-15% Pinot Nero splashed in, from vines 10-20 years old. This had 6 months on lees prior to bottling, with 15 g/L RS. Pouring a pale pink hue, this leads with candied strawberries, candy apple, and raspberry, orange, before a tart cranberry acidity breaks in, leaving this crisp and dry on the shorter, snappy finish. Great freshness for this relatively new category. Pour with brunch waffles, or light berry desserts.Tasted: 10 November 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 25.95 consignment Producer: PerlageDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
