Gorgeous UK-exclusive sparkling rosé made from the powerful Nebbiolo grape

This sparkling rosé wine from award-winning winemaker Fabrizio Francone is a delightfully unusual bubbly. It is made from Nebbiolo, which is normally reserved for the legendary reds of Piedmont: Barolo and Barbaresco.


Valsellera is crafted using the classic method – similar to the way Champagne is made. The grapes were hand-harvested in late summer from the winemaker’s family vineyard in Neive. After crushing, the juice was left in contact with the skins for a few hours to absorb the distinctive Nebbiolo flavours, and then fermented at 16°C. Finally, it was aged in the bottle on its lees for three years – a very long period for a rosé. This extended ageing smoothens the muscular and coarse tannins Nebbiolo is famous for, and helps the wine to develop a velvety, delicate character.

Tasting notes

In the glass, this Nebbiolo bubbly has a bright ruby-pink colour. A fresh violet floral nose with a core of bitter red grapefruit, lingering notes of wild strawberry balanced by a lick of sweet vanilla. Fine mousse and impressive structure reflecting long ageing sur lie.

    One of the best!
    I love a good sparkling wine, and this is very good! Smooth and generous flavour, with just the right amount of bubbles. Too good to keep for special occasions!

  2. Paola

    Perfect Celebration Fizz! This wine is the perfect choice to toast a special occasion. Everyone loved this. It’s so easy to drink. Not too dry. Fruity and well balanced.

  3. Megan

    Everyone we’ve offered this rose to has really liked it. It has an unusual depth of delicate but balanced flavours and aromas, just how you might imagine in a fantasy spring fruit orchard
