BABO Prosecco Rosé D.O.C. San Martino al Tagliamento 2020
Italy only recently approved the Prosecco Rose D.O.C. in May of 2020, and Babo were purportedly one of the first to import one to Australia. The 2020 is a blend of 89% Glera and 11% Pinot Nero and is brut in style with 8 grams of residual sugar. It’s lovely pale salmon and copper hued colour is an enticing start. Aromas of rosewater, musk, strawberry coulis, peach, tangerine, and a glimmer of sea salt. A tingling mousse brings foamy lift through the palate, and there’s a lovely bite of bitterness intermingling with peach skin, rosewater, musk, and brine. A chalky texture with grippy phenolics furthers the bitter edge, attractively so, before peach and tangerine fruit carry long with a brisk acid line. This is bright and fresh with lovely tang, and a gastronomic nuance. Importer: Bibendum Wine Co.
