DescriptionArtistry, energy and ingenuity abound in this enticing sparkling rosé from entrepreneur Sandro Bottega and his family. The basic principles Sandro holds fundamental are simple: creativity, quality and flavor are inextricably linked; discovery is a never-ending process; and imaginative presentation is essential. The metallic bottle protects the wine from light, preserving the wine's clean and refreshing aromas. Distilleria Bottega was founded nearly 40 years ago by master distiller Aldo Bottega, Sandro Bottega's father. The company is headquartered in Castello Roganzuolo, about 30 miles from Venice, Italy.
VinificationThe grapes are handpicked and pressed immediately, with 12 hours of skin contact to create a beautiful pink color. The Italian Charmat method is used, with fermentation in stainless steel tanks and a secondary fermentation in sealed tanks for 40 days.
