460 Casina Bric Gianluca Viberti Nebbiolo Brut Rosé Prêt-à-Porter NV

Alba, Cuneo, Piedmont, ItalyPink sparkling dry Nebbiolo? Si! This is Nebbiolo d'Alba, whole cluster pressed and Metodo Martinotti (aka Charmat), on lees for eight months before bottling. Luring florals dart around damson berries, red currants, and wild roses in this pale salmon / orange wine, aloft with fine bubbles that fade quickly, and centered with a toasted walnut core. The finish is surprisingly long and pleasantly astringent, with nebbiolo's lovely bitter kiss. Enjoy this sophisticated sipper with paté, charcuterie or cured / smoked salmon. 460 Casina Bric, a hilltop farm in the local Piemontese dialect, is the most elevated vineyard in the village of Barolo, where the average elevation is 460m. Gianluca Virberti is the vigneron and owner.Tasted: 30 September 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 18.00 375 private wine shops Producer: 460 Casina BricGrape: Nebbiolo
