James Suckling, 92 Points 

"Notes of sliced apples, ripe guava, bread dough, roasted almonds and custard. Medium-to full-bodied and round-textured with a vivid core of ripe fruit and crunchy acidity. It has a foamy mousse and chalky finish." 

Wine Advocate, 90 Points

"Tasted from magnum, the Contadi Castaldi NV Franciacorta Brùt (the accent on the "u" is intentional) is a blend of 80% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Nero and 10% Pinot Bianco that sees partial malolactic fermentation and some barrique aging. fruit selected from across the estate's 160 hectares of vines. It offers a classic Franciacorta bouquet with a bright citrusy element and crushed stone followed by lightly baked aromas of pastry and bread." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"In the glass it is straw yellow in color with greenish highlights, enlivened by a fine and persistent perlage. The nose is fresh, with floral notes of linden, citrus nuances, white peach and green pepper. The mouth is tight and crisp, fresh and vertical, sapid, refined and with a lingering, very enjoyable finish." 

Alcohol: 12.5%
