This time, it has red fruit aromas and a finish with hints of minerality. It can be served with Asian dishes, as an aperitif, with grilled fish, curries or seafood.
Yes, a rosé prosecco! While most proseccos are made of 100% glera, it is now allowed to add between 10-15% pinot noir to provide a pinkish color.
And the Ruffino Prosecco Rosé is a superb example of a rosé prosecco. This wine is fresh and delicately scented, with floral and strawberry notes.
