90+ Cellars Lot 197 Prosecco Rosé has launched in time for spring.
90+ Cellars, among the fastest-growing wine brands in America, is in the first wave of U.S. companies to release a wine in this newly created category.
Italy’s Prosecco DOC Consortium approved the new Prosecco Rosé DOC mid-last year, allowing a small percentage of pinot noir to be added to Prosecco’s traditional composition of 100% glera grape, and paving the way for the Italian bubbly to go pink.
The 90+ Cellars Extra Dry Prosecco Rosé blend of glera and pinot noir brings forward notes of red currants, apple blossom and rose, the company reports, followed by citrus and strawberries on the palate. A secondary fermentation in steel tanks develops bubbles that shape this wine’s effervescence.
“When the Prosecco DOC guidelines changed, we couldn’t wait to get our hands on the first-ever vintage of prosecco rosé,” says Brett Vankoski, wine director, 90+ Cellars. “This exciting bubbly is one of the most affordable Prosecco Rosés available right now, and is expertly crafted by the same team that makes Lot 50 Prosecco (our #1 wine), so we’re confident this will be love at first sip.”
Lot 197 Prosecco Rosé has a suggested retail price of $11.99 per 750-ml. bottle. It is available in retail locations across a dozen states and nationwide on ninetypluscellars.com.
