Rotari Metodo Classico Brut Chardonnay. Pinot Noir Trentino-Alto Adige NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Enthusiast Review Festive and less formal, this is a luminous sparkler with ripe melon, peach and toasted nutty notes that hits all the right marks. Nicely tart on the close with clean flavors and tight structure. The price tag is on target, too.

Italy's Trentino region is home to some of the world's most celebrated sparkling wines. The unique microclimate between Lake Garda and the Italian Alps is where vineyards are planted with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. These noble varietals, nurtured carefully throughout the year and hand selected at harvest, are the foundation of Rotari's refined Talento sparkling wines. The search for the highest quality fruit begins in the steeply terraced vineyards (ranging 950 to 2,500 ft. above sea level) of Trentino Denomination of Controlled Origin (DOC) zone. Produced using the Talento metodo classico, each wine undergoes secondary fermentation in the bottle and is aged on its lees for a minimum of 24 months. Rotari offers a full line of complex and distinctive sparklers with a fine perlage that showcases the unique aromas of the appellation. Ideal as an aperitif, these wines are also sophisticated accompaniments to international cuisine. Read less

Very pretty on the nose, with a gentle base of floral, acacia, some gum and a hint of chalk, over spiced apple fruit that really pops on the palate. This is very well balanced, with a nice edge of spice, just a hint of yeast to add complexity and pure apple, yellow plum and light spice coming together nicely in the mouth. The finish is a touch short but nicely clear, with citrus overtones to the bitter apple peel fruit. 87pts

Bright, crisp pear aroma with a nice low level of hay funkiness. The body is very smooth and creamy, minerally finish.

Used the bottle to toast all mothers on Mother's Day 2013. Also toasted my need to buy more bubbly because this was the last of the sparkling wine in my modest cellar/collection. The contents of the bottle proved adequate for the occasion to my nose and taste buds. Good value and I will look for it again.

This wine is 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Noir. It?s fresh and fragrant, just sweet enough to draw you in. The fruit, however, is on the leaner, tighter side of things, and the feel across the palate is high-toned. With a touch more richness it would be friendlier. Best Buy. ?M.S.
