"Ripe yellow plum, glazed apricot, biscuit and smoke notes are layered with juicy acidity on the creamy bead of this balanced Franciacorta. Zesty finish. Drink now through 2018. 20,000 cases made. –AN " (WS)

"Brimming with bright citrus aromas, the non-vintage Franciacorta Brut is an extremely sharp and focused expression with delineated undertones of honeydew melon and white flower that make for what is ultimately a simple, but complete bouquet. The wine shows medium intensity with a touch of yeasty creaminess on the close. Drink: 2014-2017.

Roberto Gatti founded the relatively new Ferghettina winery and produces 350,000 bottles today, including four types of Franciacorta. Their square-shaped Milledi Brut bottle is an object of rare beauty." (WA)

"This shows dried-apple and lemon character. Medium body with bright acidity. Clean and straightforward. Drink now." (JS)

"Here's a luminous sparkler with medium structure and light notes of toasted nut and yeast followed by apricot and peach. Drink it with appetizers or fish dishes and give it time to evolve in the glass." (WE)
