"The NV Franciacorta Pas Dosé (no dosage) lifts up with a bouquet of dusty dried flowers, limestone-like minerals and green apples. It’s sharply focused and teeming with vibrant acids, taking on an almost-salty and undeniably savory character, which builds tension through the close. This finishes bone-dry with lip-smacking citrus-tinged fruits that just begs you to take another sip. It’s a blend of 80% Chardonnay to 20% Pinot Noir."
91/100 Eric Guido for Vinous
- 80% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Nero. 5 years on lees. Zero dosage. 10,000 of total 100,000 bottles production.
"Pronounced red-cherry and bruised-peach aromas here – somewhat surprising for having only 10% more Pinot than the Brut plus having a long 60 months on lees. Spicy, coffee and toast notes emerge from the time on lees, complementing the fruit core. Fruit and lees richness fills out the mid palate and balances the absence of dosage, though a flinty mineral streak pushes through the finish..it has plenty of character. (TJ)"
