Wine tasting notes

In the glass, straw-yellow in colour with green highlights, and a fine persistent mousse. The nose is floral with ripe orchard fruits, mingled with vanilla and warm, freshly baked pastries. The aromas perceived on the nose are echoed on the vibrant palate, balanced by a crisp streak of minerality. This is a harmonious and elegant wine.

Oct 2015 - Simple but bright citrus aroma, some green-fruit freshness, even a little cedary. On the palate, richer and deeper. Fine mousse and a definite lees/yeast richness. Tastes as if there is slight sweetness on the finish but balanced by super-crisp acidity. Impressive concentration. (JH)


Wine Spectator (NV) - 89 pts

Well-knit and fresh, with a creamy bead and flavors of smoked hazelnut, dried apricot and ripe black raspberry. Citrusy finish. Drink now through 2019

Tasted Nov 2016 - Pretty aromas of bread dough, lemon and cooked apple. Fresh. Medium to full body, tangy acidity and a fruity finish. Always an outstanding sparking wine. Drink now.


Wine Enthusiast (NV) - 88 pts

From one of the most familiar brands of Franciacorta, this opens with aromas of red apple skin, lemon zest and candied nectarine slices. The palate offers Golden Delicious apple and hints of liqueur alongside zesty acidity and tight, persistent bubbles that leave a crisp finish.
