Paladin Rose Prosecco
Casa Paladin was founded by Valentino Paladin back in 1962, long before Prosecco was known internationally. Owned by the same family today, the business has grown to include additional projects within Veneto, and also in Lombardy and Tuscany: Bosco del Merlo, Castello Bonomi, and Fattoria di Castelvecchi. Helmed by Carlo and Roberto Paladin, the estate is farmed according to lutte raisonnée (‘reasoned viticulture’) principles, and the wines are made with 50% less sulfites than is typical.
Where Champagne tends to favour bready character from extending lee’s ageing, Prosecco offers heightened aromas and flavours of crisp orchard and tropical fruits. The addition of Pinot Nero in the Casa Paladin Prosecco DOC Millesimato Brut Rosé adds notes of strawberries and raspberries. Light pink in hue, the wine has persistent perlage. With a dosage of 12 g/l of residual sugar, the wine is well balanced with just enough sweetness to balance the focused acidity. Enjoy this wine before a meal as an aperitif, or serve it alongside seafood based dishes like Polpette di Baccalà (cod fritters).
