Cuvée Imperiale Brut

Guido Berlucchi (Italy)

Chardonnay (65%), Pinot Nero (30%), Pinot Bianco (5%)
Sparkling Wine Sparkling Wine Score: ✧✧✧✧

(Lombardy) The wine shows a brilliant greenish yellow color and nuances of greenish yellow, very transparent, good effervescence, fine and persistent perlage. The nose reveals intense, clean, pleasing and refined aromas that start with hints of banana, pineapple and yeast followed by aromas of bread crust, acacia, hawthorn, pear, apple, hazelnut and grapefruit. The mouth has good correspondence to the nose, an effervescent and crisp attack, however balanced by alcohol, good body, intense flavors. The finish is persistent with flavors of banana, pineapple and apple. Cuvée Imperiale Brut is produced with the classic method and ages in bottle on its lees for at least 18 months.

Saranno pure bollicine commerciali, quelle che trovi al supermercato sotto casa, quelle che non rappresentano certamente un mercato di nicchia, ma sono sempre una costante certezza. Come spumante non è certamente il massimo che si può avere, ma per 15 euro mi sembra onesto e corretto.
Bollicine raffinate con catenella bella e diritta che affiorano sul calice, il colore dai riflessi dorati già predispone al buon piacere. I profumi sono anch'essi ordinati e da metodo classico, con crosta di pane e lievito in buona evidenza ma anche frutta esotica e nocciola.
L'assaggio è preciso, equilibrato fra bollicine e acidità, contornato dal giusto caldo dell'alcol. Anche il finale è piacevole e di buona lunghezza.
