Ottella

Lugana Trebbiano 2017

Just a delicious wine! I challenge anyone to find something better at, or below, this price point of $14.

Prior notes hold very solid:
Nose has under-ripe tropical fruit, yellow peach, spiced pear and wet minerals.
Palate has poached pear, fresh citrus rind and pineapple, hint of salinity.

'61 Brut Franciacorta Chardonnay Blend

Creamy and big-flavoured.

It is effervescent in that the bubbles themselves are streaming constantly and furiously. But without overwhelming the flavours themselves.

Tur Blanc Dosaggio Zero Metodo Classico Lugana Turbiana 2015

Awesome. Herbaceous and minty but lush and textural. Rivals champagne for sure, with a little something extra and unusual that the latter can’t provide. — 18 days ago

Enrico Gatti

Saten Franciacorta Brut Blend 2013

This is some decadent sh!t: lemon curd, fresh pineapple, vanilla, lemon danish, angel food cake with lemon curd layers and buttercream frosting. Not sweet per se (saten is brut by definition) but ripe — 9 days ago

Citrus! Lemon, maybe a hint of grapefruit; then a bit of pineapple, a stray pine needle; ginger. Delicious. — 15 days ago

Dosage Zéro Vintage Collection Franciacorta Chardonnay Blend 2014

Nice sparkling wine, but still not as good as Champagne, and expensive for what it is. Not as dry as I expected for a dosage zero wine. — 17 days ago
