Brand Berlucchi
Alcohol/vol 12.5%
Appearance: Soft, dense, foamy mousse, with a long-lasting delicate cordon around the glass, and a long-lingering bead of fine, pin-point bubbles. Color: Intense salmon-pink, which varies according to the vintage, due to the different ripeness levels of phenolic compounds in the Pinot Noir. Bouquet: Elegant notes of wild berry-fruit and other ripe fruits, well melded with subtle nuances of yeast and crusty bread. Heady, warm quality from the brief maceration of Pinot Noir on the skins during vinification. Palate: Refined and elegant, exhibiting exceptional acidity and body. Acidity is well-balanced by the medium dosage. Serving Suggestion: The perfect aperitif, it will also pair well with various kinds of cold meats and charcuterie, full-flavoured first courses and fully aged cheeses. Pairing it with shellfish enhances its impressive structure.

This boasts a light peach-pink color and bears yeasty aromas of baguette, exotic fruit, pineapple and ripe melon. The finish shows bright accents of sour orange rind or grapefruit.
