People across the world have tried to elevate the Prosecco Rosé DOC wines for years now. In Italy for instance the movement has tried its best to make the wines trend but this has taken some time to become popular. The nation has had numerous elegant, pink sparkling wines produced all over for decades but somehow the Prosecco Rose Doc only became official in December of 2020.
Currently, the wines generally have a low price in Italy. Most of the wines are offered between $12-$20 with a few exceptions. The standards of DOC quality control heighten the value of some of the wines beyond many sparklers in this price range. This article seeks to reveal some of the new food-friendly Prosecco Rosés one can enjoy during their next brunch or cocktail hour.
Mionetto Prosecco Prestige Millesimato 2020
Last December, this bubbly was the first of the DOCs to arrive in the United States. It’s part of the brand’s well-known Prestige Collection. It’s a little on the fruity side, but it’s also a fantastic base for a rosé Negroni Sbagliato. In a wine glass, combine 1 oz. Campari or any red aperitivo with 1 oz. red vermouth, then top with the pink Prosecco. This wine is offered for $15.
Tutela DOC Rosé Extra Dry 2019
This pink fizzy is made in the regions of Treviso, Padova, Pordenone, and Venezia from 90% Glera and 10% Pinot Nero. It has exuberant bubbles, but an attractively tart and dry finish that makes it eminently quaffable. This wine is offered for $14.
Riondo Prosecco Rosé 2019
This rose sparkling wine from Venezia is also a 90% Glera, but it has a fruitier flavor profile than the rest of the category. Enjoy this sparkling wine as an aperitif or as a dessert with berries and fruit pies. This wine is offered for $13.
Bisol 1542 Jeio Prosecco DOC Rosé 2019
This winemaker was one of the first to plant Pinot Nero, and he’d been creating Champagne-style sparkling wine with it in the Conegliano-Valdobbiadene DOCG for a long time. They now make this magnificent Prosecco Rosé with slightly more Pinot Nero (15%) than others as a better indicator of labeling quality as the wine could not be formally acknowledged beyond a spumante. This wine is offered for $17.
Corvezzo Prosecco DOC Rosé Extra Dry Millesimato 2019
The Corvezzo family has been making wine in Veneto since 1960 and began transitioning to organic farming in 2010, with all of its vineyards completed in 2017. This organic and vegan Prosecco is a great value at $13 with only 12 g of residual sugar.
Brilla Prosecco DOC Rosé Millesimato 2019
The bottle’s brilliant glass design is inspired by pear-shaped diamonds. This wine has a clear, tart cherry taste and a gentler bubble profile than some of the others, making it an excellent main course partner for spring pasta dishes, sushi, or a charcuterie plate meal. This wine is offered for $13.
