Ca' del Vent Sospiri Franciacorta Brut 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dark golden color. There’s a ton of complexity and oxidative evolution on the nose here with scents of pigskin, dried fruit, a deep meaty note, gentle spice, old wood, smoke, briar and wild herbs all coming together. This has a very fine mousse, and compelling richness in the mouth with a texture that shows a bit of weight but at the same time is very well-balanced and agile. The flavors are as complex as the nose, if fresher with notes of apple butter, a little strawberry and some gentle hazelnut notes over a base of waxy fruit, and light quince jam notes. Finishing with length and finesse, this is atypical but as compelling a bottle of Franciacorta as I’ve ever come across. 93pts
