Berlucchi '61 Franciacorta Nature 2012
|Region||Italy, Lombardy, Franciacorta|
Plentiful creamy mousse with a fine, lingering cordon; subtle, delicate perlage. Vibrant straw-yellow with light coppery nuances. Layered, expressive nose profile, showcasing a crisp mineral note fusing with delicate hints of citrus, yellow-fleshed fruit and white bread. The wine displays lively, zesty acidity sustained by an enfolding body and excellent persistence that weave a dynamic and taut mouth.
Blend: 70% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Nero
Bone-dry and elegant, this polished sparkler has aromas of spring wildflower, honey, white stone fruit and bread crust. On the vibrant palate, a silky perlage accompanies ripe yellow apple, peach and ginger before finishing on an almond note.
A very attractive Franciacorta that frames Thai desserts and Cornish pasties against a sea of lemons and limes. Medium-to full-bodied with an edge of pretty acidity and lots of pastry-like flavors to close. Drink now.
