Camilucci Brut NV Franciacorta DOCG
"Dry and racy, this elegant sparkler has lovely aromas of spring flower, white stone fruit and a whiff of pie crust. Savory and vibrant, the palate is bright and creamy, doling out yellow apple, white peach, pastry cream and citrus zest alongside a foaming, continuous mousse. It closes on an almond note." -Wine Enthusiast, 93 Points
