Rose, 8 Secco Vintage, 2016
8 Secco Vintage is a sparkling rosé, from grapes grown on the hills nearby Treviso. It is a mouthwatering light pink colour with a delicate and fragrant nose of raspberry and strawberry. The palate is fresh, sapid and pleasantly aromatic and, as with most sparkling rosés, it is excellent as aperitif or with delicate foods and appetisers.
At the end of XIX century, Francesco Rocca started his historical business by selling loose wine. In 1936 his son Angelo enhanced the wine production and built a cellar in Nardò, Apulia. In the 1960's the first bottling line was bought and thus started the distribution of products under the Rocca brand. Today, Ernesto Rocca (the founder's grandson) shares responsibility with his sons Paolo, Marco, Luca and Matteo who help run the family business, a business which also includes a construction company and a leading trot horse stud farm.

One of Italy’s largest wine regions, the Veneto benefits from a range of climates and terrain – it borders the Austrian alps to the north before the hot central plains give way to the Adriatic coast - and produces one of the biggest outputs of DOC wines in the country. Soave, Valpolicella, and Amarone are among the best sellers, and the Veneto holds a high reputation for its Pinot Grigio too. Veneto is also home of Prosecco – the ever popular sparkling wine that has seen sales beat that of Champagne in recent years. A rich and exciting region to explore through your glass in the comfort of your own home.
