Ronco Calino, Franciacorta Brut, Italy
Tasting Note: A Franciacorta Brut with yeasty notes that are the wine’s calling card.
Medium-intensity lemon-to-gold in color with small, tight bubbles, this wine has a medium-intensity nose of brioche, golden apple, bosc pear and bread dough.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied wine has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus acidity and completing with a yeast-and-green-fruit filled, medium-plus finish.
The wine is slightly creamy in texture with pleasing notes of development.
A good Franciacorta Brut to start with if you’re new to region.
