Wine Tasting NotesA shiny yellow color with pale gold reflections and a fine clarity this sparkling brut is steady and persistent. 30 months of fermentation presents this wine with a finesse and complexity rarely seen in a wine this delicate. It has a fragrant intensity pointing out notes of broom and fresh linen yielding aromas of delicate, sweet honey on the final pass. This sparkling wine has a quite stable acidity on the palate and soft fullness in the mouth. The gentle tones of citrus at the finish give a zesty yet light touch making it perfect to drink anytime.

Chardonnay is the base of this creamy sparkler, with additions of Pinot Bianco and fragrant Pinot Nero. Together, these varieties produce a balanced and rich offering, with lingering aromas of nectarine, apricot, white almond and honey.

A lively bead and firm acidity frame flavors of yellow apple, lemongrass, melon, grapefruit zest and almond skin in this well-knit sparkler. Smoky finish. Drink now.

A base sparkling wine made from 80% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Bianco and 10% Pinot Nero, the non-vintage Franciacorta Brut delivers the sophistication and finesse of a top Italian sparkler. It opens with ripe fruit aromas of papaya and apricot backed by blanched almond and yellow rose. There’s a smoky, graphite note that adds sharp definition. Drink: 2014–2018.

WE 91pts. - Tasting Notes - A shiny yellow color with pale gold reflections and a fine clarity this sparkling brut is steady and persistent. Thirty months of fermentation presents this wine with a finesse and complexity rarely seen in a wine this delicate. It has a fragrant intensity pointing out notes of broom and fresh linen yielding aromas of delicate, sweet honey on the final pass. This sparkling wine has a quite stable acidity on the palate and soft fullness in the mouth. The gentle tones of citrus at the finish give a zesty yet light touch making it perfect to drink anytime.
