Bellavista Franciacorta Gran Cuvee Saten Brut NV

Winemaker's Notes:

"The non-vintage Brut, is a blend of 80% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Noir, and 10% Pinot Bianco. It exhibits a refined bouquet of yeasty bread, dried apricots, pear, and citrus. This wine, which spent three years on its lees, is rich, fresh, medium-bodied, and long in the mouth, with tiny pinpoint bubbles...this offering can stand up to the finest Champagnes....91." Wine Advocate 12/02

Lots of subtle strawberry and fruit on the nose, with hints of flowers. Medium-bodied, with a fine and creamy texture and a long finish. Winy. Drink now.

The non-vintage Brut, is a blend of 80% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Noir, and 10% Pinot Bianco. It exhibits a refined bouquet of yeasty bread, dried apricots, pear, and citrus. This wine, which spent three years on its lees, is rich, fresh, medium-bodied, and long in the mouth, with tiny pinpoint bubbles and a lot of frothiness. Drink it over the next 2andndash;4 years. This is a brilliant wine from winemaker Mattia Bezzola. The reference point for brilliantly pure, elegant, Italian sparkling wine, this offering can stand up to the finest Champagnes. This prestigious estate, created in the seventies by proprietor Vittorio Moretti, continues to fashion a bevy of dazzling sparklers.

This classic sparkling wine has aromas of pears and white flowers plus an intriguing whiff of smoke. The palate delivers creamy peach and apricot flavors, along with hints of walnut and just-baked bread. It finishes dry, with notes of toasted oak.

Lightly scrambled egg, vanilla and apple fruit all total a seductive, classy nose that's one part Champagne and one part Italian. Crisp but deep, with lovely apple and peach flavors. Quite zesty yet smooth, with serious aging potential; in fact, cell... Wine Enthusiast. A Proprietary Blend wine from Lombardy in Italy. N.V. Bellavista Franciacorta Grand Cuvee Saten 750ml
