Critic Notes

The non-vintage Brut, is a blend of 80% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Noir, and 10% Pinot Bianco. It exhibits a refined bouquet of yeasty bread, dried apricots, pear, and citrus. This wine, which spent three years on its lees, is rich, fresh, medium-bodied, and long in the mouth, with tiny pinpoint bubbles and a lot of frothiness. Drink it over the next 2-4 years. ||This is a brilliant wine from winemaker Mattia Bezzola. The reference point for brilliantly pure, elegant, Italian sparkling wine, this offering can stand up to the finest Champagnes. This prestigious estate, created in the seventies by proprietor Vittorio Moretti, continues to fashion a bevy of dazzling sparklers. Wine Advocate.December, 2002

Score: 91-/100Robert Parker

The non-vintage Franciacorta Cuvee Brut represents an easy blend of 80% Chardonnay with 18% Pinot Nero and 2% Pinot Bianco. The sparkler just oozes freshness and vitality with pear, white flower and nectarine. The medium finish ends with toasted nut and honey. Some 950,000 bottles are made. It is hard to beat this good value. Drink: 2014-2017. Dec 2013, www.robertparker.com

Brunello di Montalcino: F+R report
Part of what we do at FINE+RARE is try, wherever possible, to get as close to source as we can. Ideally we deal direct with the winemakers themselves.  Following the success of the brilliant 2010 vintage, our buying team have just returned from Montalcino.  Jessica Bryans recounts the trip: It is hard to believe that Brunello is such a new ...
