Soft and pink as a spring rose, this bottle brings together the structure of Pinot Noir with the finesse and elegance of Franciacorta. For years, Franciacorta has been compared to Champagne, but while a first glance might fool you, your first sips will tell a different story. This terroir driven sparkler has a charm and character all its own and needs to be on every wine lover’s radar for its fruit flavors, freshness, and refreshingly light acidity.
I adore the square-bottomed bottle that houses this vibrant sparkling wine. This wine makes a great first impression. The 2012 Franciacorta Rosé Brut (100% Pinot Nero) exhibits a delicate, pale pink color followed by fine aromas of violet, white cherry and red currant. Three years of aging on the lees adds more structure and body, although this sparkling wine drinks with fresh and easy abandon nonetheless.
