Frescobaldi Brut Millesimato Metodo Classico Trento DOC

External Review by Great Wines Direct:

Bouquet of crusted bread with acacia blossom and aromatic herbs with appealing nuances of crisp, lemon-edged fruit. The Frescobaldi name goes back many centuries into the history of art, culture, trade and finance of Italy in general and Tuscany in particular. In 1989 Frescobaldi bought the Castelgiocondo estate in Montalcino, the largest vine-growing farm in the Brunello area. Although the estates have gone many changes over the years, ownership has never changed hands and still, after 30 generations, is in full control of the Frescobaldi family. One of the major and largest vine growing businesses in Europe, Frescobaldi owns nine estates covering over 1,000 ha of vineyards, all located in excellent areas for fine wines. Directly managed by its family members, Frescobaldi produces almost 7 million bottles and the wines are exported to over 60 countries throughout the world. Grapes : 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir Region : Italy / Tuscany / Trento DOC Maker : Nicolo D'Afflitto Taste : This vintage, classic method, dry sparkling wine displays a dense and lingering mousse, a generous, complex bouquet of crusted bread yielding to acacia blossom and aromatic herbs and ends very long, mirroring the nose with appealing nuances of crisp, lemon-edged fruit. Serve : With horse d’oeuvres, shellfish, fish based dishes with rich sauces, cold meats and mature cheese ABV : 12.5% Suitable for Vegetarians
