La Jara Brut Rose
Made From: Pinot Grigio
Tastes Like: Cherry, Strawberry, Cream
We were delighted when we discovered La Jara’s original Ramato (skin-contact orange wine) rose of Pinot Grigio, so when we found out they had a bubbly we were over the moon! And as it turns out, sparkling wines are La Jara’s specialty. The winery’s vineyards are in some of the best terroirs of the Prosecco region, with limestone and gravel (jara) soils that contribute gorgeous aromatics and freshness to the wines, which are certified organic. Like Prosecco, La Jara Brut Rose is made in the spumante style via charmat method, but it’s made from Pinot Grigio rather than the standard Glera grape. Aromas of strawberry, raspberries, and rose petals lead into flavors of peaches, cranberries, and cream on the palate. It is dry, with a light-to-medium body, fizzy mousse, and a refreshing finish. 90 Points, Decanter.
