Curtefranca, Brescia

Barone Pizzini

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. — 18 days ago

Ricci Curbastro

Satèn Franciacorta Brut Chardonnay 2009


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. — 14 days ago

Riserva Molceo Lugana White Blend 2018

This Lombardian white wine opens with a floral nose, which is quickly joined by the scent of apricots and grapefruit. There is an overriding sense of salinity, with a touch of lanolin as well. On the palate, that salinity comes bursting forth in a nutty, mineral-driven flavor. The acidity is racy enough for shellfish but not sharp enough to hurt the taste buds. If you’d like a wine which comes on like an Albariño and then behaves like a Roussanne before becoming a Sauvignon Blanc, this wine should make you happy. It made me ecstatic. — a month ago

Le Marchesine

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! — 6 days ago

Perla del Garda

Madonna della Scoperta Trebbiano 2017

This wine has what I love about Italian whites - uncompromising minerality and salinity. That’s the nose in a nutshell, with a light touch of white flowers and a waxy feel. The palate sports a nice lemon mineral note, with slightly racy acidity and a barely bitter finish. I paired it with pierogies and minestrone. Happy. — a month ago
