Brut NV – 88 Points – Robert Parker Wine Advocate (#195 Jun.2011)
“The NV Brut is an unusual wine made from Sagrantino vinified off the skins. It is a pretty, refreshing sparkling wine loaded with clean, crisp green apples, flowers and mint. This pleasant NV Brut should be enjoyed in its youth.” ~A.G.
