Motif - Extra Dry Sparkling Rosé (Lombardia, Italy)
First, I would say that the sparkling wines of Lombardia are the best in all of Italy, however, they are not to be compared to Prosecco which is it's own unique gem. And most
people have no idea that the Champagne method (Traditional method) actually was invented in Italy.
When you start talking about sparkling wines, one of the most desired grapes is Pinot Noir as it usually yields a more fruity and deeper character than Chardonnay. This wine is
made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes, grown on a soil made of clay-loam with limestone matrix present in all layers. Cultivation Guyot unilateral. This wine has a delicate color, notes of rose and violet on the
nose, with bubbles fine and very persistent. The sugar content is well-compensated by an excellent acidity.
Most people don't under dosage, which deals with the sugar level of sparklings wines, as Brut means extra, extra dry. I tend to prefer extra dry sparkling wines, and even some
which are just considered dry. I think you'll love this one.
