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.
Tasting Notes: Pale golden color. Ripe green apple and hints of banana on the nose. Honeyed apricots, peaches and other dried fruits on the palate. Nice and balanced, with a touch of dryness on the moderate finish. Enjoy with funky cheeses, chocolates and other desserts.
Tasting Notes: Dark-grape purple in color, easy light bubbles, fresh flavors. This is a touch sweet (Amabile) and a perfect pairing with spicy food or charcuterie. This is really balanced between the sweetness and the acidity; makes you wonder why you don't drink more of this with dinner.
Tasting Notes: This debut offering pretty much completes the overall Duckhorn portfolio — what bridge have they not crossed? Expanding their horizons one more time, they use the time-proven success for the shared winemaking teams and shared sourcing from prime site all over California. Classic blend of 49% pinot noir, 47% chardonnay and 4% pinot meunier. Vinified in the methode champenoise. Final dosage is French oak barrel-fermented Napa chardonnay for a final elegant touch. Toasted apple, pear, citrus and yeast dominate the nose. Good acidity with a hint of sweetness. Exceptional value for this category.
Tasting Notes: Peach and slight honey aromas become flavors on the palate, along with a nice green apple note that brightens the wine. Approachable and round, with an easy-to-enjoy, smooth, bubbly texture.
