Barone Pizzini Animante Brut fær góða dóma hjá Decanter

Barone Pizzini, Animante Brut, Franciacorta, Italy NV17/20pts (90/100pts)When it comes to Italian sparkling wine, there are two options: Prosecco or Franciacorta. Prosecco may be more familiar to most wine lovers, but Franciacorta is, in general, so much more rewarding. Made using the traditional Champagne method, this is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Bianco. Citrus and apple fruit on the palate are wrapped up with a fine mousse and a creamy texture. Franciacorta may not be widely available but it’s well worth looking out for.Price £19.99 Vintage RootsDrink 2015Alc 12.5%
