La Gioiosa Rosea Brut 6/75cl

Based in Treviso in the heart of Prosecco country, La Gioiosa is one of Italy's leading Prosecco producers. Owned by the Moretti Polegato family, la Gioiosa represents the tradition of winemaking which has been passed through generations of the family. Furthermore the company is at the forefront of innovation - the winemaker freezes the Prosecco must prior to fermentation to ensure maximum freshness upon bottling and more recently has unveiled both a lower in sugar Prosecco ('La Gioisoa 63KCal') and a Prosecco made from organically grown grapes. These two wines are also available to order now from UK stock. 

La Gioiosa is the No1 Premium Prosecco brand in the Impulse sector (Nielsen March 2018 MAT - Sparkling wine report).

DAILY MAIL WORLD WINE AWARDS TOP 3 WORLD SPARKLING WINES: "It looks smart, the flavour is a knockout, with wild cherry blossom notes on the nose and faint cranberry tinges on the palate, and the finish is rewarding too." Mathhew Jukes Daily Mail Dec 2018

This wine’s name means “joy and love”, so it’s intentions are ambitious – and happily the pinot noir and blanc which mane the rose prosecco style fizz do bring both joy and love to the flavour.” Matthew Jukes Daily Mail June 2018

This is a rose Prosecco-style fizz and it’s one of the nicest sparkling pink wines on the shelf, regardless of cost. Smooth, perfumed and beautifully delicate, it’s at a snip of the usual price for this level of delightful indulgence.” Matthew Jukes Daily Mail Feb 2018

"I tasted my way through a line-up of Proseccos recently, and this one stood out for all the right reasons — so fresh and light, with a lovely note of almond and pear to it, too." Helen McGinn Daily Mail Nov 2017

Based in Treviso in the heart of 'Prosecco country', La Gioiosa has consistently won awards across the globe and its quality wines are enjoyed my many. The winemaker freezes the Prosecco must prior to fermentation to ensure maximum freshness upon bottling.

Vineyard info / Viticulture Areas dedicated to vine growing in the north eastern regions of Italy with marly soils of alluvial origin rich in subsoil.
Vinification White grapes are pressed and the resulting must is put into temperature controlled tanks until the production of sparkling wine. Red grapes are pressed and put into tank for extraction of colour and a few tannins. The white wine and a small portion of the red wine is mixed and yeast is added for fermentation. Once the wine reaches the desired alcohol and sugar content fermentation is stopped by refrigeration. After a minimum of 2 months the wine is ready for bottling.
Tasting Note Light and bright rose colour. Fine and delicate perlage. Fruity and flowery bouquet with delicate notes of unripe golden apple and small mountain flowers. The flavour is dry, fresh and zesty with a fruity and harmonious aftertaste.
Food Match Excellent as an aperitif and ideal with fish especially with Livornese style fish.
