Interessante interpretazione delle emergenti bollicine delle langhe. Cremoso, setoso e con la giusta effervescenza, all'assaggio è piacevole con le sue note agrumate e di pane tostato, quasi di biscotto. Richiama continuamente i profumi che si sono già apprezzati al naso, compresa una piacevole nota di miele.
Ottimo l'equilibrio fra la morbidezza e l'acidità. Bollicina di sicuro interesse, con il giusto equilibrio fra il corpo del Pinot nero e l'eleganza dello Chardonnay.

Place of Tasting: Milano
Price: € 18.50
