Odd Bacchus – January 14, 2016

In “The Best Wines I Drank in 2015: White & Sparkling,” Rob Frisch lists his favorite white wines from last year, including:

BARONE PIZZINI Satèn Franciacorta 2011

“Franciacorta reserves the ‘Satèn’ designation for 100% Chardonnay wines (blanc de blancs) that have spent a minimum of 24 months aging on the lees. Barone Pizzini aged this Satèn between 30 and 40 months, giving this organic wine time to develop additional complexity. It had a nose of green apple and vanilla with a bit of toast, and I loved its classy bubbles, lemony acids and juicy, appley fruit.”
