Barone Pizzini Perlugo Zero Spumante
A perfect palate cleanser between courses of a meal or as a refreshing tipple when you need a pick me up. The mouth is expressive and crisp with some yeasty notes but over all a zesty and fresh taste. Zero dosage (no added sugar)
Best Prosecco Alternatives, Evening Standard, 'Keeping things Italian, this organic Spumante - the blanket term for fully sparkling as opposed to the lighter Frizzante styles (Prosecco tends to fall into the former) - is made from 100 per cent Verdicchio grapes from the Marche region. With zero dosage - no added sugar - after the second fermentation, the flavours stand up on their own: enlivening notes of fresh citrus, baked bread and a mouthwateringly crisp, bone-dry finish.' Nuria Stylianou, August 2017
17/20 - JancisRobinson.com '100% Verdicchio. Inviting leesy lemon nose. Assertive CO2 on the attack, then piercing fresh lemon fruit. Mouth-watering. Fine lasting prickle. Delicious.' Walter Speller, August 2016
The Pizzini family arrived in Franciacorta in the 1870s. Since then, the estates have passed through many generations of the same family, until in the 1990s a group of local wine entrepreneurs, bought the estate and started to invest in the business putting people, and the environment first. Organic techniques followed and soon they expanded their horizons by investing and buying new properties in the Maremma Toscana area and in the Marche, Castelli di Jesi. With a full range of wines from three important wine regions of Italy, Barone Pizzini are a dynamic, quality driven group whose wines are enjoying increasing recognition. We are very pleased to be working with more of their wines in the UK this year.
