Bisson, Vino Frizzante Bianco, Veneto, Italy
Tasting Note: A bright, fresh, dry, informal Italian sparkler.
Pale-intensity lemon in color, this wine has a nose of lemon citrus peel, green apple and quince.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied bianco presents bright, fresh-fruit flavors suggested on the nose.
The wine is medium-plus in acidity with a steely texture.
The wine is straightforward and good in its dimension.
A rustic, Italian sparkler.
Bottle Note: Each wine bearing the “Rosenthal Wine Merchant” mark has been produced in limited quantities by a dedicated artisan. The growers with whom I work follow traditional methods and produce wines in as natural a manner as possible. In the overwhelming majority of cases, the wines I select are unfined and unfiltered. Therefore, you may find that a sediment forms in the bottle. This is a natural occurrence. All my wines are shipped from the estate at which they were bottled to the point of distribution in the United States with every care taken to protect them from the vagaries of temperature fluctuation. – Neal Rosenthal
