Jim Bandy Likes This Wine.
From Northwest Italy, this Pinot Noir/Chardonnay blend drinks like a young Champagne but at a much lower price point.
Made with 85% Pinot Nero and 15% Chardonnay, this has inviting aromas of bread dough, red berry, eucalyptus, and baking spice. The aromas follow through to the focused palate, along with pomegranate, hazelnut, and star anise set against a refined perlage. Vibrant acidity lifts the finish.—K.O.
