The Finer Details
What does our Somm say?
Technically, ‘Pink Prosecco’ doesn’t exist, but this is as close as you’d get to that. This Rosé Cuvée from Cester Camillo uses a base of ‘Extra Dry’ Prosecco, with extra complexity added to the tint and flavour profile by bleeding in skin contact with the red grape Raboso.
Mostly, this wine shines when appreciated with a cheese platter or by itself.
However, if you’d like to enjoy with a dish, you need to respect that it’s delicate. By this, I mean, best to match it with risotto’s, white meats, shellfish, grilled fish, sushi or sashimi. Personally, I enjoy it with a light salad or snapper (in a fennel and lemon sauce).

What does Rosé Cuvée mean?
While the term ‘Cuvee’ is French and has its origins in French winemaking, in the instance of this wine, the ‘Cuvée’ refers to the fact that the wine is made using a blend of wine from multiple vats, whereas the ‘Rosé’ is a nod to its beautiful colour.
- Glera 95%
- Raboso 5% (Skin Contact for bleeding colour and complexity of flavour only)
- Traditional Prosecco method of Charmat-Martinotti. The wine is bottled after second fermentation in steel tanks where the internal pressure increases for a month to around 4.5 atm.
