"Bright and savory, this refreshing, polished sparkler boasts alluring aromas of juicy raspberry, wild cherry, baking spice and a whiff of bread crust.

"Enticing aromas and flavors of ripe strawberry and raspberry fruit are set on the fine, lively bead in this clean-cut, mouthwatering ros, with a chalky underpinning. Lightly spiced on the lingering finish."-WS

Tasting Panel 90
"Pale pink; crisp, citrus nose; juicy and tangy with lively acidity and snappy style; good depth, balanced and finesse."-TP

James Suckling 90
"A grapefruit-colored ros with sliced apples, raspberries, blood orange and some brioche on the nose. Its medium-bodied with silky, soft bubbles and bright acidity. Crisp and fresh with a savory finish. Dry feel. Drink now."-JS

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 90
"The NV Franciacorta '61 Brut Ros (disgorged in 2017) represents a nicely balanced blend of 60% Pinot Nero and 40% Chardonnay aged in the bottle on the lees for 24 months. Some 140,000 bottles were produced. This is a delicate but festive wine that shows a steady succession of small berry, lilac and floral aromas. There's a refreshing kick of acidity on the close."-RP

"Classic (Champagne) Method Rose from the most important quality sparkling region in Italy... Pinot Nero, Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay. It's just killer! This producer created the Franciacorta sparkling wines in 1961, hence '61 on the label."-Winemaker

"As the #1 Metodo Classico sparkling wine producer in Italy, Berlucchi is unique in that it produces its wines in the classic Champagne method modeled after the famous mthode Champenoise. The primary philosophy guiding this winery was laid out by founder Franco Ziliani: produce wines of quality, at affordable prices.

Berlucchi has become synonymous with classic method sparkling wine, the bottle for that occasion and everyday enjoyment alike, for both festive toasts and through a meal."-Winery Notes
