Top 10 sparkling wines of 2018

6 Fontanafredda, Vigna Gatinera, Alta Langa DOC, Piedmont, Italy, 2008        

Unlike the Piedmontese sparkling featured above, this fizz from the Alta Langa DOC contains no Chardonnay, but is made entirely from Pinot Noir, or rather, Pinot Nero, to use the Italian name for the grape.

And, hailing from the 2008 vintage, it is five year’s older than the example from the aforementioned Banfi. As a result, this fizz from the famous Fontanafredda producer has plenty of nutty, biscuity richness, along with fresh apple and pear fruit characters, and a touch of dried yellow fruit.

Approximate retail price: £23
