2009 Franciacorta Brut Rosato (Monzio Compagnoni, Azienda Agricola)
Monzio Compagnoni, Franciacorta Brut Rosato, Lombardy, Italy 200980% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay DELICATE MOUSSE, POMEGRANATE & WHITE CHERRY, GENTLE SPICE Not far from Milan, Lombardy's Franciacorta region has provided Italy since 1967 with an official (and very eloquent) answer to France's Champagne. Viticulture has existed here, however, much longer. Today, both the grapes used and the methods employed are, by law, modeled after those of Champagne while guidelines and restrictions are, impressively, even more stringent and conducive to quality. In 1987, 20 years after the area's DOC status became cemented, a young Marcel Monzio Compagnoni founded the estate responsible for this elegantly subtle and intoxicatingly-perfumed bubbly. Serving Suggestion: Mild sashimi (Snapper or Yellowfin, for instance). Triple cream cheeses. Quiche w/ smoked trout, spinach, & a flaky, buttery crust.
