Franciacorta Brut as vibration of light, as movement and transformation. Little bubbles that transmit joy and transgression. An explosion of sensations giving pleasure and colour to life. Man plays the leading role, with his thoughts and plans. With his interpretation of the land explored in all its most traditional varieties, that come together in the glass, with their excesses refined and in their virtues enhanced. White flowers in the bouquet, which advances freshly and brightly, with enveloping fruity notes and hints of aniseed, nougat and honey. This freshness is felt again in the palate, which is tangy, full and plump. It is the childhood recollection of candied peel, the alchemic pleasure of warm spicy notes that blend in the finish with accents of liquorice and cinnamon. It is the joyous suggestion of taste and smell sensations, perceived with the eyes.

Wine EnthusiastPeach, pear and white mushroom appear on a well-balanced nose that is very attractive, albeit less intense than some others. This sparkler delivers fine and persistent perlage, toasted flavors and a silky mouthfeel.

Wine SpectatorInteresting aromas of strawberries and flowers. Very frothy, with good fruit and a toasted, nutty aftertaste. Drink now.
