Wine AdvocateMade with organically-farmed fruit, the non-vintage Franciacorta Brut Animante is a plush and textured sparkling wine that peels back slowly to reveal aromas of peach, honeydew melon, pear and Golden Delicious apple. Crisp acidity helps to create a mouthfeel that is light, tonic and graced with a great sense of energy and brightness. The wine presents mild textural richness that suggests immediate or near-term drinking window. The blend is 78% Chardonnay, 18% Pinot Nero and 4% Pinot Bianco.

Wine EnthusiastMade with organically grown grapes, this offers aromas of white flower, Bartlett pear, citrus and spice. The lively palate delivers lemon pastries, Golden Delicious apple and clove alongside bright acidity and a creamy, soft mousse.
