The Story

Sparkling Rosé is an elegant and stylish Italian sparkling wine made primarily from the Glera grape, which is used in all Prosecco wines, blended with Pinot Noir. The Glera grape gives the wine structure and body, and the Pinot Noir provides the wine with a beautiful rose hue. Its extra-dry style makes it easy to enjoy, and its bright fruit flavors and delicate bubbles make it perfect to enjoy as an apéritif or to pair with a variety of dishes.

Food Pairing Suggestions

Ruffino Sparkling Rosé is enjoyable on its own as an aperitif, but also as a food companion, pairing well with a variety of dishes including grilled fish, roasted chicken, and mixed greens salads.

Winemaker's Notes

Grapes for Ruffino Sparkling Rosé are from highly desirable vineyards in northeastern Italy. The first stage in making this sparkling wine follows traditional still wine methods. A white wine is made from Glera grapes and a second red wine is made from Pinot Noir grapes. These two wines are then blended, creating a wine with a beautiful rose hue and bright flavors. In the second stage, the Charmat method is used to bring about a secondary fermentation before the wine is bottled under pressure, preserving all of the fresh and fragrant characteristics of the wine.
