Tasting Notes

The Faccoli winery makes Franciacorta contrary to the norm of the region by aging their wines for extended periods of time on the lees, going above and beyond the standard. This spent 30 months on the lees and was only disgorged in the latter half of 2015. The profile is exquisite, dry with red-berried fruits and a mineral and fresh herb aspect on the finish. Reminiscent of a fine Montagne de Reims rosé Champagne. Clearly a sparkling wine that can age for many years to come.

Here one finds renditions of Pinot Noir that deliver power with finesse and grace, wines that have unimaginable depth of flavor, yet are perfectly balanced and ephemeral in the mouth - in short, wines that deliver all that Pinot Noir has to offer. Terroir,...

Chardonnay

From Champagne to Chablis, it's hard (not to mention unpleasant) to avoid this famous white variety. During a huge popularity surge beginning in the late 1980s, Chardonnay plantings have increased dramatically -- not only in California's wine country, with which the variety is nearly synonymous, but also in Burgundy (its original, Old World home) and just about everywhere else in the winemaking...
