Named in honor of Alessandra’s mother, the Clo Clo Rosé is made from the gentle second press of hand-harvested pinot noir. This zero-zero, brut sparkling rosé is one that easily transitions from cocktail hour to dinner. The wine exhibits a beautiful light pink shade with bright citrus notes, hints of dried fruit and a touch of brioche. Delicate, lithe, with a stealth power from the richness of the lees aging.
