Pink bubbly goodness from Frassinelli in the Veneto. A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and local variety Raboso, this will be a surefire hit on a summer's evening.
Founded in 1966 by Aldo Frassinelli, the 13 hectares estate is today run by his children. Roberta is in charge of sales, marketing and exports, and Gianluca makes the wine. Their vines range in age from 10 to 25 years. The soil is generally white limestone.
Frassinelli's Rosé Spumante Brut is a blend of Merlot and Raboso, picked separately, the latter about four weeks after the former. They are blended for the second fermentation, which lasts 40 days. The residual sugar is 10 gm/l. They do not use sugar for the dosage but concentrated Prosecco must.
