This spring, U.S. consumers will encounter an entirely new category of wine in their local retail shops and on restaurant wine lists: Prosecco rosé. A savvy marketing move, the creation of these new sparkling wines puts together two of the biggest wine trends of the past decade, rosé and Prosecco. You can discover even more about pink Prosecco in this week's selection of bubbly highlights!

What should consumers expect from Prosecco rosé? As the name suggests, the wines offer a range of appealing rosy hues, from palest ballet slipper to wild salmon to bright bubble gum. On the palate, Prosecco rosés typically offer the same creamy texture and soft bead as white Prosecco. Yet, while both versions share many of the same flavors of white peach and nectarine, with floral and spice notes, the rosé—made by blending in Pinot Noir (known as Pinot Nero in Italy) vinified as a still red wine—introduces some red fruit flavors as well.

Tasting Highlights’ wine reviews are fresh out of the tasting room, offering a sneak peek of our editors’ most recent scores and notes to WineSpectator.com members.
