RPWA - 2011 Franciacorta Brut Millesimato, Dec 2018, 91 Points
"The 2011 Franciacorta Brut Millesimato is a festive blend of Chardonnay (60%) and Pinot Nero (40%). My sample was disgorged in October 2017. This wine sees half of its mass fermented in oak, and the wine boasts thicker textural intensity as a result. The bouquet is characterized by stone fruit, apricot and cream-filled brioche. A sour touch of lemon zest appears on the close. Only 4,500 bottles were released."
