Professional Wine Reviews for Barone Pizzini Franciacorta Animante

Rated 90 by Wine Advocate
Made with organically-farmed fruit, the non-vintage Franciacorta Brut Animante is a plush and textured sparkling wine that peels back slowly to reveal aromas of peach, honeydew melon, pear and Golden Delicious apple. Crisp acidity helps to create a mouthfeel that is light, tonic and graced with a great sense of energy and brightness. The wine presents mild textural richness that suggests immediate or near-term drinking window. The blend is 78% Chardonnay, 18% Pinot Nero and 4% Pinot Bianco.

Additional Information on Barone Pizzini Franciacorta Animante

Winery Barone Pizzini

Region: Lombardy

Lombardy, in north west Italy, has been home to many of the country's finest white wines for centuries, and steadily built up a reputation for excellence as a result of the exceedingly high quality, dry and crisp white wines which are produced there. The primary grape varietal associated with Lombardy is the wonderful Trebbiano di Laguna, a noble subspecies of the Trebbiano grape, which, as the name suggests, grows extremely well on the shores of the beautiful and much visited Lake Garda. However, recent years have seen plenty of experimentation when it comes to grape varietals, and many wineries in the Lombardy region now grow all manner of French Bordeaux grapes, including Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, which are used to make superb red wines.

Country: Italy

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
