Color: Straw yellow, with greenish highlights. Bouquet: Crisp, rich, and elegant, fairly lengthy and with lovely depth. It releases generous fragrances of apple, pear and citrus. Palate: Displays an exceptional freshness and zesty acidity, with a velvet texture and fine balance, concluding with appealing notes of citrus. Serving Suggestion: The perfect aperitif, it will also pair well with most dishes, in particular the traditional recipes of the Franciacorta area, such as casoncelli (ravioli) and fresh-water fish (perch and char). It brings out the best qualities of dishes featuring rice, pasta, light meats, salt-water fish, fresh and medium-aged cheeses.

Firm and smoky, this minerally version offers a subtle mix of crunchy pear, toast, melon, preserved lemon and fleur de sel flavors with a clean-cut, lacy finish. Drink now through 2018.

Brut 61 is a tribute to the year Berlucchi produced the first sparking wines made using the classic method in Franciacorta. This fun, simple and lively sparkler offers citrus fruit, notes of pineapple and a crisp, clean finish.
