Franciacorta Extra Brut Rosé Brolese - F.lli Muratori Villa Crespia

Here we offer you a Rosé of great class from the Villa Crespia collection. The characters are those of a great classic method, with a style very close to the wines of Champagne. The scents of brioche and butter cookies go hand in hand with subtle fruity accents, and the taste is direct, fresh, essential, as tradition dictates. A bubbly for true connoisseurs that, with its elegant soft ruby red colour, satisfies not only the palate but also the eye: because what the eye sees is important too.

Franciacorta is one of the most renowned classic method sparkling wines produced in Italy. Together with Asti and Marsala, it is one of the only three cases in which it is sufficient to indicate the name without any other qualifying terms. Villa Crespia pays homage to this great sparkling wine right from its name: in the Middle Ages, "Crespie" were sparkling wines. The name of the wine, on the other hand, comes from "Brolo", which means enclosed garden: a bit like the image that evokes the Brolese with the intimate and personal sensations it conveys. "When I was a researcher in the field of oenology” explains Francesco Iacono, oenologist at Arcipelago Muratori , “I participated in a study conducted in Franciacorta to identify the nature of the soils. We discovered that in the small territory known by this appellation, just over 2000 hectares, there are no less than six different environments. I based the personality of Villa Crespia Franciacorta wines on these six different environments, each of which brings distinct characteristics to the grapes that I want to find in the glass. The Villa Crespia estate has a cellar which was inaugurated in 2005, called "Cantina Più Dodici Meno Dodici": from ground level it rises twelve metres with the reception and office areas, and falls to minus twelve with the wine-making and storage areas, with a total of over 20 thousand square metres of floor space.

     Bright light pink with a steady stream of small bubbles. Red currant, tobacco and minerals on the nose. Fairly rich and broad but not especially pliant, revealing a slightly coarse quality to the bubbles. A blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Nero.   - Ian D'Agata

  • Robert Parker 88

     The NV Franciacorta Brolese Rosé Extra Brut opens to a pale pink color and pretty floral intensity. On the nose, this pretty pink sparkler (made with Pinot Nero and Chardonnay) shows cranberry aromas with white cherry, dried herb, blanched almond and pine nut. The effervescence here is soft and yielding and the wine offers a beautiful degree of creamy richness to the mouth. There's a touch of sweetness on the close with cherry and raspberry flavors as well.   - Monica Larner

  • Jancis Robinson 16

      Very pale salmon. At first a little neutral on the nose. Then a flash of strawberry fruit on the palate. High acidity and ends a little tart.   - Walter Speller

  • Wine Enthusiast 93

     Made with Chardonnay and Pinot Nero, this offers delicate scents of wildflowers, orchard fruit and a whiff of baking spice. Racy, linear and refreshing, the crisp dry palate delivers Rennet apple, nectarine and a hint of ginger, while a graphite note adds depth. It's elegant, with small, continuous bubbles.   - Kerin O'Keefe

  • Wine Spectator 88

     Firm and mouthwatering, showing good balance between the racy acidity and appealing flavors of black currant and black raspberry, with hints of pastry and marzipan. Drink now through 2017. 1,000 cases imported.   - Alison Napjus
