From: Franciacorta DOCG, Lombardy, Italy
Lees-ageing time: 26 months
Medal: Gold (Rosé Masters, 2016)

The Berlucchi 61 Rosé Brut hails from Italy’s celebrated sparkling wine region called Franciacorta, where strict rules are imposed on producers to ensure high-quality fizz is produced right across the DOCG. With as much as 60% Pinot Noir in the blend, the Berlucchi Rosé has plenty of juicy red cherry fruit, but 40% Chardonnay adds a lemony edge, complemented by a gently toasted bready character from more than two years spent ageing in contact with the wine’s lees.

    I am with Karen’s comment above… Not one Sparkling Rose from California, either???
    Come on!
    (The missing representations from Spain/Cava, California and Australia make this a highly subjective assessment.)
