Pet Nat Rosé Nude 2021 – Zanotto
This ancestral rosé wine is a blend of white (Glera) and red grapes (Merlot). Re-fermented in the bottle and unfiltered, it is elegant, flavourful, and well-structured. The taste resembles freshly squeezed grapes with hints of peaches. On the palate, the fragrance is persistent and balanced, with aromas of ripe fruit. It can be enjoyed clear, leaving the sediments at the bottom, or by gently swirling the bottle to enhance the intensity of the aromas.

Riccardo Zanotto annually creates Ancestral wines (Pet Nat) with lees and Prosecco sparkling wines, using grapes from trusted producers and from his family’s vineyard. He’s aware that each terroir, whether hilly or flat, exposed to full sun or sheltered, imparts a specific personality to the final result. With the collaboration and guidance of an expert winemaker, he is able to bottle his exact vision of wine.
Zanotto collection of wines can be divided into two important types: sparkling wines made using the Martinotti method, with the secondary fermentation occurring in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature and pressure (autoclave), and wines made using the ancient “Ancestral” method. In this method, the second fermentation occurs spontaneously in the bottle, and the yeast and sediments remain deposited inside, without any filtration or correction interventions.
This is the ancient method used by farmers long before modern sparkling wine technologies became widespread.
Each of these wines possesses a unique and surprising personality for those who wish to explore new (yet actually ancient) taste experiences.
