The producer who first started Franciacorta. This is roughly 90/10 Chardonnay/Pinot noir.
Compared to the Majolini I opened a few months back, this is a bit more crisp. The best compliment I can give this wine is that it comes across as a non-descript champagne. It’s not overly fruity or too steely like some Franciacorta can be, it’s perfectly balanced for the style. No yeast. It’s fairly creamy, with peach, caramel dipped apple and a slightly brisk/savory finish (almond/walnut like, but not champagne-nutty). Semi-mineral driven finish. Good at the $30’ish price. — 5 months ago
Delicious, crisp fruit with a gerber baby food smell and vanilla pudding note, the best sparkling rose I’ve ever had — a year ago

This is a nice and easy drinking sparking wine from Italy.
Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.
Dry on the palate, tangy and engaging.
Showing citrus, green apples, herbs, earth, yeast and minerals.
Good by itself or with food. Needs 30 minutes to open up properly, so be patient. I've had it before, but never gave it the chance to breathe. Worth the wait.
