Beretta Lo Sparviere 'Cuvée n.7' Brut Franciacorta NV
Beretta Lo Sparviere ‘Cuvée n.7’ Brut Franciacorta DOCG NV
Franciacorta DOCG Lombardy, Italy
Surrounded by abbeys and priories sits Brescia, Franciacorta, where winemaking traditions trace back to ancient Roman times. South of the Lago d’Isea and east of the Oglio river, Franciacorta is a visual feast of morainic hills that slope gently towards the southern plains. It’s unique positioning grants it a particularly mild climate. Here you’ll find Azienda Lo Sparviere, a wine estate owned by the Gussalli Beretta family that spans 60 hectares, of which 25 are planted to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
With a pleasant floral nose that welcomes you to a taut and mineral laden sparkling wine, this brut is reflective of the clay and limestone soils its grapes were grown in. The wine is very smooth with mouth watering hits of rich fruit and tangy sapidity. It is a true crowd pleaser.
Pair it With:
You can drink this wine with just about anything that is salty, fried or fishy and it will be magic. It’s a great aperitif, but it can be enjoyed with your main course as well.
