Review: 2014 Rotari Brut
Prosecco is the sparkling wine most commonly associate with Italy, but the country produces many different varieties, including this one from Trentodoc from the Dolomites in Northern Italy, which is made from 100% chardonnay. We reviewed the 2013 vintage in 2016. Today we have the following year’s bottling with a little more aging. Let’s see how it compares.
As with the 2013, this bottling also presents apple notes balanced with lemon and almond. I’m not sure if it is the extra time in the bottle or the later vintage, but this 2014 (reviewed in 2020) seems to show a bit more gravitas, introducing some toasty character and fine integration among the different flavors. The bubbles are fine and refreshing and there is a good amount of acidity. This is a surprisingly enjoyable sparkling wine and a good value for the price.
