Straw yellow, with greenish highlights
Apple and pear, along with notes of tropical fruit and subtle nuances of spice
Fresh and zesty acidity on the palate with a velvet texture and the balance, concluding with appealing notes of citrus
Wine & Spirits 90 points - A blend of chardonnay (90 percent) and pinot noir, the ’61 in the name refers to the year Berlucchi started making sparkling wine in the traditional method, with a secondary fermentation in bottle. This is a clean and delicate sparkler with a creamy mousse and tight, seashell-like minerality balanced by touches of sweetness. The gentle richness makes it easy to drink, with or without food.
