Valdo

Marca Oro Rosé

Background

Valdo was started in 1926 by the Societa Anonima Vini Superiori and purchased by the Bolla Family in the 1940’s. Over 90 years of continuous innovation with an ongoing quest for quality and devotion to respecting the vineyards & wine-making traditions of the region, has helped to secure Valdo’s position as the #1 Best Selling Prosecco in Italy for over 15 years.
The Rosé is created from the perfect blend of two typical Italian varietals, the Sicilian black grapes Nerello Mascalese, from Sambuca Sicily in the province of Argiento which is 984 feet above sea level, and Glera, the fruity grape from the Veneto region in the province of Treviso at 262 feet above sea level. The vineyard that grows the Nerello Mascalese has clay and limestone soil and the Glera vineyard is alluvial clay.

Winemaking

Tasting Notes

Rose petal color. The bouquet has fine and elegant blossoms, with a consistent presence of raspberry. The palate has a tickling fine perlage; pleasant round flavors with charming fruity aromas.
