Elegance and Value from Franciacorta

  1. Very elegantly written review for some elegant wines. I have only recently tried Fanciacorta and I was absolutely delighted. The one I tried was crisp, with lime flavors, a hint of grass, and yet it was also smooth and satisfying. I wonder if more people knew about Franciacorta wines, would they become a more popular substitute for (often over-priced) Champagne? I’m particularly interested in the rosé you tried here. I once tried a fabulous Niagara sparkling rosé and your description here reminds me of that wine. I will certainly seek these out – for the prices, they sound like wonderful wines! Thanks for a nice post.

    1. Matt:

      Thank you. I would say that the average wine drinker does not know the products from Franciacorta. As with most top quality wines, once someone is introduced to these products, they tend to like them.
