87 Points – Vinous/Int. Wine Cellar, August 2010
“The NV Prosecco Brut Rosé Jeio is made from equal parts Merlot and Pinot Noir. It is a fairly restrained wine with excellent balance and a refined mousse. I am not generally a fan of rosé Prosecco, a category that has been created to exploit the growing popularity of both rosés and sparkling wines, yet everything here works beautifully, and this is one if the very few examples that merit attention. This is Lot 10027A.” – Antonio Galloni

A perennial favorite, it’s reassuring to see that the quality continues to remain high even from Guigal’s least expensive cuvée.
