Nelson Cenci “L’Insolita Annata” Millesimato Brut
70% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Bianco, 10% Pinot Nero
Special edition, with just 1,500 bottles produced in 2011.
Pale straw-yellow, with golden reflections and subtle perlage. Immediately opens with sweet, toasted, crusty bread notes on the nose, followed by acacia flowers and fresh, fleshy apple, white peach, white mulberry, pineapple, orange and cedar notes, with a distinctly mineral, chalky sensation running through the bouquet. Fresh, creamy, full-flavoured mouthfeel, with medium body and good balance. At the back of the throat, consistent with the initial impression, with the citrus and mineral notes coming through more clearly. Pleasing almond finish.
