| 96 points, James Suckling: 'A fabulous sparkling wine with super finesse and intensity. Very fine bead of bubble. Complex and subtle aromas of cooked apple, lemon, bread dough and light toffee. Full body, yet agile and bright. Dense and compacted palate. Aged some months on the lees. Clearly one of the great sparkling wines of the world.' Tasted: 20-Oct-2015
92 points, Wine Spectator: “Crème de cassis, mandarin orange peel, brioche and grated ginger notes are bright and expressive in this vibrant Franciacorta. A skein of aromatic ground spice unravels on the fine mousse and finish. Drink now through 2021.” (Alison Napjus)
Winemaker's note: Only the finest grapes from the various crus are earmarked for this icon Franciacorta wine. And only in the finest years. Meticulous vinification and very lengthy bottle refinement at least seven years on yeasts. This is how a great wine is created, unique, magnificently golden and with ultra-fine perlage. Extraordinarily complex bouquet, exceptionally full and persistent taste. Dosage 1.0 grams of sugar per litre.
