Pizzolato Rosé Prosecco DOC First in the Market Made With 100% Organic Grapes

Posted on December 15, 2020

Grants Pass, OR. (December 14, 2020) – Natural Merchants, Inc. with headquarters in Grants Pass, OR. and Cartagena, Spain introduces Pizzolato Rosé Prosecco Brut DOC, the first Rosé Prosecco DOC in the market Made with 100% Organic Grapes. The rollout begins with a staged launch in select markets including NY, CA and TN, followed by a national launch in March.

A New Wine Category - Rosé Prosecco DOC

After many years of discussion, in May the Prosecco DOC Consortium in Italy approved the introduction of Rosé Prosecco DOC. This combines two of the hottest wine trends over the past 10 years – rosé and Prosecco – and should be a big hit among sparkling wine lovers nationwide. The Prosecco Consortium anticipates total production of “up to 30 million bottles per year.” Pizzolato Rosé Prosecco Brut DOC joins the best-selling lineup of organic Proseccos from Cantina Pizzolato, producers of Italy’s number-one selling Italian organic wines.

Pizzolato Rosé Prosecco DOC is made of 90% organic Glera and 10% Organic Pinot Nero. The wine is produced using the Charmat method, vinified for two months. The rich Pinot Nero grapes, after a soft pressing, are left in contact with the skins for the period necessary to reach the brilliant pink color.

Pizzolato Rosé Prosecco DOC has an intense aroma, with delicate hints of white flowers, apple, pear, typical of Prosecco’s aroma, which blend with recognizable notes of red fruits. Fresh, with a lush flavor and a good acidity, the wine is savory, with a dry and persistent finish. Velvety, fresh, well balanced, and lively with an elegant aftertaste and persistent perlage. Pizzolato Rosé Prosecco pairs nicely with light appetizers, including sashimi and mild cheeses. The ABV of 11% makes this a perfect wine for everyday meals and celebrations. SRP is $18.99.

“Our estate-grown organic Glera and Pinot Nero grapes were used to produce our first Rosé Prosecco DOC and we are thrilled to enter this exciting new sparkling category,” said Cantina Pizzolato 5th generation winemaker Settimo Pizzolato. “With our own 14HA of organic Pinot Nero, we are excited to be able to offer a 100% organically grown Rosé Prosecco DOC at a reasonable price. This exciting new prosecco further positions Cantina Pizzolato as one of the leading organic producers in the Veneto region.”
