What is Prosecco rosé?

Prosecco Rosé marks a vibrant and contemporary addition to the sparkling wine scene, blending traditional Prosecco charm with the allure of rosé. This pink fizz has rapidly gained acclaim since its introduction, offering a unique twist on the classic Prosecco experience.

Origins and Production

Introduced in 2020, Prosecco Rosé is a novel category within the Prosecco DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) designation. It’s crafted predominantly from the Glera grape, native to northeastern Italy, with an addition of 10-15% Pinot Noir to achieve its distinct pink hue. The blend of these grapes imparts a beautiful rosy color and adds depth and complexity to the wine’s flavor profile​​​​​​.

The Charmat Method

Like traditional Prosecco, the rosé variant undergoes secondary fermentation using the Charmat method. This process occurs in stainless steel tanks and is crucial for developing Prosecco’s signature effervescence.

Prosecco Rosé’s second fermentation period is extended compared to white Prosecco, usually lasting 60 days. This longer fermentation allows for a more integrated flavor profile, enhancing the wine’s complexity and stability of color​​​​.

Flavor Profile and Characteristics

Prosecco Rosé stands out with its refreshing and vibrant character. The inclusion of Pinot Noir adds notes of red fruits and berries, complementing Prosecco’s classic fresh fruit and floral aromas.

This delicate balance results in a wine that is visually appealing and rich in taste, offering a nuanced experience that appeals to both Prosecco and rosé enthusiasts​​​​.

Versatility in Pairing

One of the most appealing aspects of Prosecco Rosé is its versatility. Its refreshing nature and balanced profile make it an excellent companion to various dishes.

It pairs particularly well with light salads, seafood, and spicy cuisine. The ideal serving temperature of around 45-48°F allows the wine to express its delightful aromas and flavors fully​​.

The Rising Popularity

Since its introduction, Prosecco Rosé has seen a meteoric rise in popularity. This surge can be attributed to its approachable taste, alluring color, and the novelty it brings to the sparkling wine category. As a versatile and vibrant addition to the Prosecco family, it has quickly become a preferred choice for many wine enthusiasts​​.


Prosecco Rosé is more than just a pink version of Prosecco; it’s a testament to innovation and tradition converging in the wine world. With its unique production method, distinct flavor profile, and versatile pairing possibilities, Prosecco Rosé offers a refreshing and sophisticated wine experience, capturing the essence of both Prosecco and rosé.
