There is always a reason to celebrate – whether a birthday, anniversary, accomplishment or a fabulous friends get-together, and Prosecco has become a firm favourite among us Brits for marking such occasions.
Our DOC Prosecco from Teresa Rizzi (DOC meaning Controlled Designation of Origin, an international product quality-control) has been joined behind the Wetherspoon bar by its blushing Italian cousin!
Teresa Rizzi Italian Sparkling Rosé (11.5% ABV) is now available in both a 200ml and 750ml bottle, together with our already-popular Teresa Rizzi Prosecco (11% ABV), exclusive to Wetherspoon.
Made from pinot noir and pinot blanc grape varieties, grown on hillside vineyards in northeast Italy, this sparkling rosé is the perfect start to any occasion.
It is light pink in colour, delightfully fresh and fruity, with a delicate bouquet of strawberry, raspberry, a touch of cream and a gentle, but persistent, mousse.
It is made when select grapes are gently crushed and pressed, then quickly separated from the mix to avoid imparting too much colour to the wine.
After the first temperature-controlled alcoholic fermentation, at around 18°C, the basic wine undergoes a second fermentation in closed pressure tanks, resulting in a fully sparkling wine.
An affordable and favoured alternative to French Champagne, our Italian fizz Teresa Rizzi Prosecco is a sparkling dry white wine from the Veneto region, in Treviso, also in northeast Italy.
Light and lively, this pale straw-yellow-coloured wine is bright and clear, with soft, fine bubbles. It is clean, dry and fresh to taste, with elegant tones of ripe fruits, herbs and acacia flowers.
As many of us try to cut down and attempt a healthier lifestyle, and the new ‘skinny Prosecco’ PR machine goes into overdrive, it might be interesting to note that the Calorie content of our Prosecco matches that of its ‘skinny’ little sister – without any of the marketing hype.
Enjoy our fabulous new Teresa Rizzi Italian Sparkling Rosé or our wonderful sparkling white wine Teresa Rizzi Prosecco, whatever the occasion, at your favourite Wetherspoon.
