Straw yellow, with greenish highlights. On the nose, this wine is crisp, rich, and elegant, fairly lengthy and with lovely depth. It releases generous fragrances of apple and pear, along with notes of tropical fruit and subtle nuances of spice. Displays an exceptional freshness and zesty acidity on the palate with a velvet texture and fine balance, concluding with appealing notes of citrus. Blend: 90% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Nero

Robert Parker 90 Points "This is one of the most accessible and well-priced expressions of high-end (Classic Method) Italian sparkling wines you can find on the market today. The NV Franciacorta '61 Brut (disgorged in 2017) is fresh and zesty with a long and festive set of easy-drinking qualities. You get citrus, stone fruit and sweet almond all backed by persistent perlage. The wine represents a blend of 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Nero aged on the lees for two years."

A blend of 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Nero, this refined sparkler opens with heady aromas of white wild flower, citrus and a whiff of bread crust. On the lively palate, fresh acidity brightens creamy white peach, Golden Delicious apple and lemon drop. A brioche note wraps up the finish.

Peach and passion fruit flavors leap from the glass of this harmonious sparkler. Meshes lively acidity with a lacy mousse and accents of pastry cream, candied pink grapefruit zest and spring blossom.
