- Rosé Prosecco, £10 a bottle, Marks and Spencer – buy here
Marks and Spencer have worked very closely withpartner wineries in Italy to create one of the very first blends of the new bubbly.
It's available now online and instore, and will set shoppers back £10 for a standard 75cl bottle.
Later this month shoppers will also be able to get their hands on a Mini 20cl bottle for £3.80, and a Magnum for £18; both of these will hit stores on the 17 November.
Dror Nativ M&S Wine Buyer says: “We’re very excited about this launch and we know our customers will absolutely love this delicious new prosecco variety.
"Prosecco is our customers favourite sparkling wine and we sell 5.4 million bottles every year. We’re so delighted to get this in stores ahead of Christmas so our customers can enjoy it over the festive season, and I think the magnum will make an amazing extra special Christmas gift this year.”
Marks' traditional and rose prosecco has been made by producer Masottina, owned by the Del Bianco family who have worked with M&S for many years, and are now in charge of creating the very first D.O.C M&S Rosé Prosecco.
But why the big fuss? Rosé sparkling wine has always been produced in the north east of Italy, but was not allowed to be called prosecco.
However after the incredible success of prosecco around the world, it made sense to make a Rosé under this prestigious D.O.C denomination.
Rosé Prosecco is made from the prosecco grape Glera with an addition of at least 10% Pinot Noir to give the wine its pink colour; and follows the strict regulations set out by the ‘Consorzio di Tutela’ to ensure it's a real vintage.
Marks and Spencers' Rose Prosecco is available online here, and will cost you £60 for a case of six; just £10 a bottle.
