    October 27, 2021 - Bright, beautiful color, well balanced, notes of tart cranberry, higher acidity pairs well with richer foods like risotto, brioche finish rounds out each sip. Would be a crowd pleaser at any Thanksgiving.

    January 24, 2021 - Very pale in color. This NV version is definitely missing some of the intensity and aromatics of the vintage versions I have had. Very light and crisp with some citrus and floral notes but no real discernable red fruit aromas or flavors. Good acidity and refreshing to drink but just not that exciting and a bit lacking in concentration.

    September 1, 2020 - Lithe and aromatic with basil, lemon, flowers, and lots of bright cherry (and cherry blossom—a definite Sakura note). Lively and high acid. This is structured and recognizably Nebbiolo, better and more serious than rosé Nebbiolo I’ve had before. On par with good entry level rosé champagne for sure, with less toast/lees and more fresh floral and herbal character. This is good stuff that could work well with a wide variety of food, and I would buy again. We had it with saffron rose omelettes, black garlic and Sakura Shoyu marinated tofu, and a grated cucumber salad with cinnamon and orange water; was good with all of those dishes. I imagine would be excellent with a lot of Japanese food. Very good qpr for bubbly, probably the best under-$40 bubbly I’ve had. ~7.5/8

    February 9, 2020 - While Ettore Germano is better known for its traditional Piedmontese wines--Barolo, Barbera and Dolcetto--the estate makes a number of intriguing and less traditional wines under the Langhe appellation, including this sparkling rosé. Done in the Champagne method, this bubby is made from young-vine Nebbiolo grown in the family's Barolo holdings of Cerreta, Pra Po, Pradone and Lazzarito. Picked early and left on the skins for just a short time to extract just a bit of color and avoid Nebbiolo's pronounced tannins. Roses and violet driven aromatics on nose with yeast notes of toasted bread and a slight raspberry accent.

    December 31, 2019 - Alluring Nebbiolo rose sparkler (we had the extra brut bottling). Tasty, crisp with a long dry finish.
