Elegant and silky, this lovely sparkler opens with aromas of wildflower, crushed herb, orchard fruit and a yeasty hint of bread dough. Made with 70% Pinot Nero and 30% Chardonnay, the vibrant, creamy palate shows red cherry, Gala apple, white peach and tangerine zest alongside bright acidity and an ultrafine perlage. A mineral note lingers on the dry, juicy finish.
