Italian Sparkling Rose Veneto
Winery : Astoria & Carpene Malvolti
Mixed dozen contains 6 each Carpene Malvolti and Astoria Honor Rose
Carpene Malvolti Rose Cuvee Brut: Maraschino cherry in a bottle - softly bubbling pinot nero (pinot noir) and raboso grapes from Italy's Veneto region create a delicious drink that’s not too sweet, not too dry. Raboso veronese, with its combo of high acidity and sweet fruit, is perfect for the sparkling rose wines of the Veneto region.
Deliciously easy to drink with or without food, but it is particularly good aperitif with rosy slices of prosciutto. Everyone from hip 18YO to the groovy elder folk will enjoy this one. A friendly 12% alcohol.
Astoria Honor Rose Millesimato 2018: From top Prosecco and Pinot Grigio producer Astoria. Made from raboso and pinot nero from vineyards close to the River Piave at the border of Treviso and Venice provinces. The grapes are left to macerate on the skins to give the wine its beautiful pink hue.
Notes of raspberry brioche and red currant, again brilliant balance between fruit sweetness, touch of tannin and refreshing acidity. Extremely more-ish. 11.5% alcohol, making it a great choice for lunch.
