Deep gold color. Grapefruit, lemon oil, apricot, brioche and rich lees flavor on the nose. Green apple, grapefruit and a little bit honey component on the palate. Rich, round texture, fresh acidity, slight bitter finish(grapefruit skin). Very nice! Disgorged spring 2016. 12.5% alc.

Bottle fermentation. Nice acids. Truly a lovely aperitif. Napoleon's fault for conquering Friscati. But I say that it the most exceptional way.😋

Bright Apple skins, rich malic acid, slight signs of age.

Always drink bubbles during the oscars and this was a great choice. Terrific stuff.

Haven't had this in ages. Still sexy as hell. Franciacorta FTW.
