Contadi Castaldi Franciacorta Brut Rosé


SKU 8019433020204


It has a beautiful coral pink colour, very bright, with a fine and persistent perlage. An original Franciacorta, in a modern style, making skilful use of the Pinot nero grapes. The nose has clear notes of wild berries, fresh rose petals, hints of apple and tropical fruit. The mouth is structured, crisp and lively, tangy and sensually upbeat. The finish is long and well balanced.

Wine AdvocateThe NV Franciacorta Brut Rose is a pale pink and luminous sparkling wine that makes a great first impression in terms of appearance. The bouquet does not disappoint either thanks to its fresh aromas of pink grapefruit, peach and wild raspberry. The aromas converge with light and smooth persistence. The wine is partially aged in oak. This non vintage blend of 65% Chardonnay and 35% Pinot Nero is perfect for near-term consumption.

Wine EnthusiastThis fun, pale pink sparkler offers delicate flavors of apple, tart cherry and a touch of citrus. Lively, persistent bubbles and a kick of acidity lift the finish.
