BANDAROSSA. A “GOOD SIGN”
Originally the banda rossa or Red Band was a mark that the founder, Giuliano Bortolomiol ,put only on bottles containing the best Extra Dry of the year. These were the bottles that were kept for real friends, those who shared his passion for the land, tradition and good wine. That special Prosecco that Giuliano marked has, since 1986, had its own label and signifies the quality of the best wines from the Bortolomiol winery.
The bouquet is rich and enormously pleasurable. The fragrance is of a variety of mature fruit: an aroma of powdery yellow apple and pear stand out, while there are also gentle shades of citrus sweet, fine flowery hints. The creamily sparkling palette doesn’t disappoint as it’s well moulded into the sugar residue. Wonderful as an aperitif, this wine is intriguing with savoury dishes delicately combined with fruit, such as trout marinated with Melissa grass accompanied by cooked must and sour cream.

The new Bandarossa, which still represents the quality of the best sparkling wines of the Bortolomiol cellars, will be officially presented at Vinitaly.
The Bandarossa image-enhancing project does in fact follow an eco-sustainable approach: from the materials of cartons and boxes to reorganising logistics, attempts have been made to optimize the process so as to pursue that sustainability which makes the firm stand out.
Furthermore, a new payoff has been associated with the product to stress its exceptional quality and status compared to other products: the famous quote by John Keats: “A thing of beauty is a joy forever”.
