Winemaker Notes: Straw yellow with slight green reflections in color. On the nose, fresh and lasting, with significant overtones of ripe golden apples, wild flowers and a subtle and delicate fragrance of yeast. Clean and balanced in taste, with a slight and pleasant finish of ripe fruit and a hint of bread-crust.
A sparkling wine of pronounced finesse. Perfect served as an aperitif or with lighter dishes, especially seafood.
James Suckling - "Attractive aromas and flavors of lime, lemon and cooked apple. Hints of cream too. Full to medium body, bright acidity and a fresh finish. Always an outstanding Italian sparkling wine. Disgorged in 2014. Drink now."
Wine Enthusiast - Comforting aromas of oven-baked bread and Bartlett pear waft out of the glass. On the polished, refreshing palate, a continuous perlage frames creamy yellow apple, nectarine and citrus zest alongside a hint of baking spice.
Wine Spectator - Fresh and balanced, with a fine, lacy bead and a streak of salinity underscoring the Asian pear, ground ginger, hazelnut and lemon zest notes. Very drinkable. Drink now through 2019. 200,000 cases made.
