Spumante Rosato Brut Il Follo
|Grapes||Prosecco, Cab Sauv|
Delicately pink sparkling wine from the Prosecco region, blended with 15% Cabernet Sauvignon making for a very attractive and quaffable 'aperitivo'. L&S (Feb 2008)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
This has 15% Cabernet Sauvignon for some structure, which means it cannot be called Prosecco. A pure and intense rose with a hint of strawberries on the aroma, a light creamy palate and a slight peppery tannic bite. I particularly like this one. So sniff around and in the flood of Prosecco to our shores you will be rewarded by a decent bottle. In other words something light with green apple freshness – not a ‘serious’ wine, but seriously enjoyable with more a modicum of structure and which does not fall of a cliff on the finish.

Luca Follador represents the younger generation at this estate and his introduction of a less expensive range of Prosecco 'Frizzante' wines (which are not DOC) has been a great success including in the USA.
Allegedly on his first trip to the States he arrived at his distributor's office in NY to present the wines to their clients, unshaven, in tight blue jeans and a very tight white T-shirt, because he said, 'this is what the girls like!'. These are fun wines, but very good quality too.
