Do you love Prosecco as much as I do? I was excited to be invited to the launch of Mionetto Prosecco Rosé DOC in Toronto. I already love Prosecco but a Rose Prosecco just kicks it up a notch.
Welcome Mionetto Prosecco Rosé DOC to Toronto
This beautiful Mionetto Prosecco Rosé was paired with a wonderful dinner. We started with an antipasto of aged beef tartare with crispy shallots, herbs, and sourdough.
The Primi Piatia was Risotto with Minetto Rosé DOC, blue cheese cream, and pears. The Secondi Piatti was roasted duck breast with cipollini agrodolce, broccolini, and coffee jus.
We ended the evening with a delicious dessert of coconut milk and dark chocolate ganache with fruit and almond crumbs paired with Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream.
About Mionotto Prosecco
Master winemaker Francesco Mionetto opened the winery in Valdobbiadene in 1887 that is just north of Venice in the heart of the Prosecco. Mionetto is a flagship for the area and is known internationally for its Prosecco production. The Glera grape was originally known as Prosecco and originated as far as Roman times.
Mionetto refers to their Prosecco as a product with a “casual style, qualitative, not snobbish and not elitist.”
Mionetto Prosecco is a casual, refreshing, light bubbly wine that pairs well with many different foods. It is full of flavour, low in alcohol, and can be enjoyed in so many ways. It is easy drinking on its own but also pairs well with charcuterie and many dishes.
This Mionetto Prosecco is made with Glera and Pinot Nero grapes which are soft pressed. They have been left on skin contact for several days for that beautiful pale pink colour. The wine has undergone secondary fermentation in the Charmat method in stainless steel that is temperature-controlled and matured for 60 days.
This Mionetto Prosecco Rosé has refreshing notes of berries, citrus and honey with a creamy smooth finish.
The best temperature to serve Prosecco is between 6 and 8 degrees.
What to Pair with Mionetto Prosecco Rosé
Although Prosecco is fabulous on it’s own, as you can see from the event menu above, Prosecco is so versatile. We had it paired with raw meat, risotto, roasted duck breast and a coconut dessert. You can also try a nice charcuterrie board, salmon, salads, soft cheeses and so much more.
