The ultimate in apéritifs! Valdo ‘Marco Oro’ Prosecco di Valdobbiadene DOCG is a grapey, softly sparkling, fun wine from the highly rated house of Valdo, based in the heart of the Veneto production area at Valdobbiadene.
Glera is the grape variety for the white wine but under EU law, Champagne and sparkling wine may have red wine blended into it to make a rosé as an alternative to the “saigné” method of bleeding off juice once the fermentation on the skins has produced enough colour, and from then on it is vinified as a white wine. In the case of the Valdo Brut Rose, the southern grape variety Nerello Mascalese has been added to produce a fun, softly sparkling, strawberries and cream style wine which is quite delicious.
Fine and elegant blossom, with a consistent presence of raspberry aromas on the nose. A fine perlage of minute bubbles; pleasant round warm flavour with a charming fruity aroma.
