The NV Franciacorta Brut is a delicious wine with a great level of energy and freshness. If you are looking for a classic expression of Italian sparkling wine from Franciacorta, this is your wine. It presents a tonic mouthfeel with steely effervescence and a clean, pristine finish. This is a fresh and lively sparkler that delivers great energy and personality. The blend is 80% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Nero and 10% Pinot Bianco.

A base sparkling wine made from 80% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Bianco and 10% Pinot Nero, the non-vintage Franciacorta Brut delivers the sophistication and finesse of a top Italian sparkler. It opens with ripe fruit aromas of papaya and apricot backed by blanched almond and yellow rose. There’s a smoky, graphite note that adds sharp definition. Drink: 2014–2018.

Chardonnay is the base of this creamy sparkler, with additions of Pinot Bianco and fragrant Pinot Nero. Together, these varieties produce a balanced and rich offering, with lingering aromas of nectarine, apricot, white almond and honey.

A lively bead and firm acidity frame flavors of yellow apple, lemongrass, melon, grapefruit zest and almond skin in this well-knit sparkler. Smoky finish. Drink now.
