Monte Rossa, Cabochon Brut, Franciacorta, Lombardy, Italy, 2013
70% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Nero
A fine and elegant nose with intense, complex scents of orange blossom, hawthorn, cooked apple and toasted almond. The creamy mousse shows nice persistence. The palate displays long lasting sweet acidity with candy lemon and cedar character, ending on a lush finish of vanilla and butter and biscuits.
