Castello di Amorosa Sprumante del Castello Brut 2017 Napa Valley, California
Pale lemon in color with a light golden hue.
Soft nose of citrus, lemons, apples, pears, yeast, white pepper, minerals and light spices.
Full bodied with medium plus acidity and small bubbles.
Dry on the palate with lemons, citrus, green apples, minerals, bread, spices, light yeast and white pepper.
Tangy finish with spices and limes.
This is a great Vintage sparkling wine from Napa Valley. Easy drinking with a nice mouthfeel. Shows nice complexity, once it opens up.
Would be nice to revisit it in 5 years. Will age nicely in the next 5 to 10 years.
Needs an hour of airtime to open up properly. As it opens up, more bread and yeast notes show up. Reminds me of a good quality Champagne.
Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a smoked salmon with heirloom tomatoes, yolk dust and crispy capers.
A blend of 73% Chardonnay and 27% Pinot Noir. Made in the traditional method.
12.5% alcohol by volume.

The wine is colored a medium-dark ruby red and features a rich nose of black cherry, cedar, mocha, vanilla and tobacco. The palate is hefty and dark, with flavors of cherry and currant joined by a dollop of licorice and some savory oak notes. The tannins are fine and the acidity is refreshing. There is a lingering sense of savory cherry on the lengthy finish. I paired this wine with a roasted tomato and parmesan focaccia bread, although it probably would have been better suited to accompany the marinara meatballs I had for lunch. — 25 days ago
