The Emissary Rosé DOC
The Emissary Prosecco DOC Rosé Treviso.
Vibrant, fresh and fruity. Perfect for long sunny days and Italian al fresco lunches.
Terroir & Climate
The grapes used to craft The Emissary Prosecco DOC Rosé Treviso grow at the foot of the Colli Asolani hills, that stretch from east to west at the northern end of the province of Treviso (Veneto). These vineyards benefit from excellent sun exposure and from the mild, temperate climate of the area. The particular soil composition of the Asolo area results in a fuller, more complex prosecco with finer bubbles. These bubbles give the wine a distinctive creamy texture.
Harvest & Winemaking
In early September, the grapes are carefully harvested and selected for pressing. This Rosé is crafted using a combination of 85% Glera and 15% Pinot Noir grapes. The destemmed Glera grapes are very softly pressed and immediately separated from their skins to preserve the fresh fruit flavours typical of this variety. Meanwhile, the Pinot Noir grapes undergo maceration in the style of a red wine. The juice is left in contact with the skins for 3-4 days to extract colour and flavour. The winemaker will then strain the juice from the skins into clean tanks where the Pinot Noir completes its fermentation. For secondary fermentation using the Charmat Method, the two base wines are blended with sugar and yeasts in a closed tank. This is held under pressure for a minimum of 60 days – in this time the carbon dioxide is trapped resulting in beautifully fine bubbles.
Delicate pink hue with aromas of rose and eglantine, intensified by notes of delicious red berry fruits. The lively, vibrant nose perfectly matches the crisp freshness and elegant, fine perlage that lingers on the palate.
