Barone Pizzini Franciacorta Brut Animante
A northern Italian blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Bianco, this Franciacorta is highly rewarding.
A subtle perfume of lime and green fruits, with a toastiness not unsurprising given the two-year ageing on its less. Elegant, dry, precise, and persistent, there’s a crafted balance between the medley of citrus and exotic fruit, and the palate-pleasing creamy, nutty texture.
Ideal as an apéritif, it also features well with lightly flavoured foods.
An excellent expression of Franciacorta, and a worthy alternative to Champagne.
