Cuvée '61 Brut Franciacorta Blend

If you’re in the mood for bubbles, there are so many delicious options! 🥂 🍾

This beautiful sparkling wine comes from Franciacorta, DOCG – a region in Lombary, Italy (Northern Italy).  🇮🇹

It’s comprised of 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir) and is made using a method like in Champagne, France (with a second fermentation in the bottle) – the Metodo Classico – also undergoing at least 24 months aging sur lie.  This time sur lie adds complexity and richness to the wine. 👏👏👏👏

👁 This wine is medium lemon with a soft and delicate mousse.

👃 On the nose this wine has youthful aromas with notes of apple, pear, lemon zest, dried citrus blossom, toasted rice, brioche, bread dough, yeast, and blanched almond.  🍏 🍐 🍋 🥖

👄 On the palate this wine is dry. It has medium(+) acidity, a medium body, medium alcohol, and medium intensity in aromas consistent with the nose.

This wine is elegant and has great balance, complexity, and richness. ☺️👍👍👍👍

Edizione Franciacorta Rosé Pinot Noir 2016

Star bright salmon pink. Persistent fine bubbles. Nose and juicy light bodied palate of dusty strawberry, cherry drops, and cranberries. Firm, bright acidity. Drink this Pinot Noir (80%) bubbly with a meal, with soft to medium cheeses, or at your next celebration. When you buy it, of course. — 3 months ago

Satén Franciacorta Chardonnay 2015

Beautiful creamy texture and effervescent mousse. Aromas of peaches, honey and vanilla cake. Yellow delicious apple with just a touch of citrus and bread on the pallet. Soft and velvety but still very “Champagne like.” Wonderfully fresh tasting with beautiful mouthfeel. Winner! — 2 months ago

9.0

Surprising in its unpretentious well balanced profile of not pretending to be the yeasty Champagne but just its own character of white fruits and earthy minerals and medium finish. Great with Leila’s grilled garlic shrimp and next day Evan’s spicy chicken tortilla. — 3 months ago

Franciacorta Chardonnay Blend

Nice bubbly. Far from champs though. What with the lack of mineral? — 3 months ago
