Wine Advocate: 90+ points
I adore the square-bottomed bottle that houses this vibrant sparkling wine. This wine makes a great first impression. The 2012 Franciacorta Rosé Brut (100% Pinot Nero) exhibits a delicate, pale pink color followed by fine aromas of violet, white cherry and red currant. Three years of aging on the lees adds more structure and body, although this sparkling wine drinks with fresh and easy abandon nonetheless.
