Bottega Il Vino dei Poeti White Gold Pinot Nero NV

Oltrepò Pavese, Lombardy, ItalyYou only need to meet Sandro Bottega once to understand why his wines have so much energy. Bottega is a dynamo of the first order who has been running the family business since 1983. The distinctive liquid metal that envelopes his bottles comes in different shades. The silver packaging of the White Gold is as mesmerizing as this 100 per cent pinot noir sparkler. The bead of bubbles is tiny causing a persistent ring of bubbles at the rim of the glass. The bouquet is delicate with floral, white fruit aromas and flavours with a pinch of dried fruits and nuts. Dry, fresh and persistent, the finish is as clean as the bottle. Excellent with jamon, olives, French bread, cheese, nuts - well you get the point. Good value.Tasted: 27 September 2016Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
