Mionetto Prosecco Rosé DOC 2020

92
Mionetto
Varietal: Sparkling
Vintage: 2020
Country of Origin: Italy
Appellation: Prosecco
Retail Price: $15.00

Tasting Notes: Rosé prosecco is a new category approved by the Consorzio. In this case, the 10% pinot noir is fermented in the same method of the glera, which makes up the balance of the wine. The Mionetto rosé enjoys clean and bright fruit, more fresh than baked. The fruit dominates the palate, as well as the lingering, clean finish.
