Description

This elegant northern Italian sparkling organic blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Bianco is drenched in aromas and flavours of citrus, peach, honeydew melon, pear, green apple, exotic fruits and floral notes, underpinned by hints of brioche and just a nuance of nuttiness.

Combining two of the traditional ‘Champagne’ grapes of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and adding a touch of Pinot Blanc this sparkling wine, made by the same traditional method, can certainly give Champagne a run for its money!

Barone Pizzini, which was founded in 1870, was the first organic producer of Franciacorta, and this wine is testament to the care and passion that goes hand-in-hand with the organic philosophy to produce high-quality wines that are a complete expression of the terroir. As the producers themselves say: ‘Organic grape-growing is arduous and requires more hours of manual labour. But it can be done. Since 1998, the fruit of our commitment has been healthy, beautiful grapes. Organic vineyards teem with life. Their robust roots dig deep and they express a real connection with the land. Organic farming is the means, but quality is the end.’

The bubbles aren’t overly effervescent which makes it one of those sparkling wines that you can enjoy as an apéritif as much as with lightly flavoured foods, such as fish or seafood.
