FIOL Launches Prosecco Rosé

FIOL Prosecco Rosé

FIOL has announced the launch of FIOL Rosé Prosecco. The new offering from the Treviso-based winery is the latest addition to the new category of Rosé Prosecco, established following changes to Prosecco D.O.C. regulations by the Italian National Wine Committee in May of 2020. 

Made with the 85% Glera and 15% Pinot Noir grapes, FIOL Rosé is a refreshing and rich sparkling wine. A translucent coral color, the wine offers fruity aromas of raspberry and wild strawberry and hints of citrus lemon fruits and white flowers. On the palate, notes of pear and apple dance around, while the Pinot Noir shines through, resulting in a harmonious palate with a persistent finish.

FIOL Rosé is the brand’s second expression and embodies a “true taste of Italy,” according to a press release. It was recently awarded Double Gold at the 2021 Prosecco Masters and Berliner Wine Trophy. 

“During the winemaking process, our team uses the best raw materials with the right dosage of Pinot Noir in the assembly phase to ensure the perfect balance between acidity and sugars,” says winemaker Marzio Pol, a leading expert in wine and sparkling wine who draws on experience at some of Italy’s most prestigious wineries.

In the Venetian dialect, fiol is an ancient word that means son but is now commonly used to refer to a friend within a group who stands out—a natural leader who defies convention and lives life to the fullest.

“Our brand was made to be recognizable and to be enjoyed with family and friends. It fills the gap between luxury and affordability,” says Gian Luca Passi, co-founder of FIOL. “We aspired to produce an outstanding Rosé unlike any other on the market, that would also be positioned as the go-to for everyday celebrations.”

The Rosé pairs well with a wide variety of dishes and is perfect by the glass or mixed into cocktails, such as a spritz, Bellini, or mimosa. It’s the closest thing to having an Aperitivo in Italy itself.

The wine can be purchased directly from the brand’s new online store. It is priced at $18.99.
