Giacosa?s Spumante is produced using the champagne method using Pinot Noir grapes. Matured on the lees for three years and riddled by hand, this is a softly textured wine with a very elegant mousse. The 2007 vintage has a lovely bready complexity on the nose and the palate is bursting with delicate white stone fruit characters. Delicious with food but also perfect on its own, this versatile and very complex dry sparkling wine rivals the very finest offerings from Franciacorta and is better than many champagnes. Delicious now.
Reviews & Scores
A firm, fruity white with sliced apple, melon and hints of cream. Full body, a lovely bead and a long finish. This is always super quality. Disgorged in March 2015.
