You’ve heard of pink gin, now you’re getting pink prosecco.
Pink prosecco has a nice alliterative ring to it, does it not? Well, you ought to get used to hearing it because it’s officially a thing now, according to the Prosecco DOC Consortium.
We may not be able to go to bars, but dammit, we can still get excited about new alcoholic products! Italy has just approved the production of Prosecco DOC Rosé, a beautiful pink prosecco. More specifically, it’s rosé prosecco, but, whatever it is, we want it by the bucket load.
The product was unanimously approved by The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Forestry Policies’ National Wine Committee, so it could hit stores by next year. You may have drunk sparkling rosé before, but this official pink prosecco is different—and its creation needed approval before now. So it’s no small deal.
“From the 1st of January after the harvest” is the suggested time that has been given for sales to begin. The Prosecco DOC Consortium estimates that up to 30 million bottles could be produced each year. So, bring on 2021! (For more reasons than one, am I right?)
