Ricci Curbastro Brut DOCG (Half Bottle)
37.5 CL, 12.5% ABV
A wonderful, easy to drink, expressive example of Franciacorta, with a captivating combination of floral (from the Pinot Blanc) and fruity (from the Chardonnay) notes.
Grapes: 60% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Blanc, 10% Pinot Noir.
Color: brilliant straw yellow with rich, abundant foam and a fine persistent bead.
Nose: slightly floral, elegant, notably intensity with notes of yeast and freshly baked bread.
Palate: structured, but smooth and creamy, even in its dry flavor, with fruity notes, and a long balanced finish.
This lean-bodied blend of presents aromas of preserved lemon, summer peach, toasted nut and bread crust. This sparkling wine's beading is refined and tight. Some 35,000 bottles are produced annually (RP)
