The nose has lovely floral notes that are reminiscent of the wonderfully refreshing spumanti of Italy, with citrus and strawberry fruit nuances. The palate begins with a nice, classic mousse mouthfeel. Strawberry, brown spice, and citrus flavors interplay with a refreshing acidity that carries everything into a long, delicious finish. Good with braised pork chops with a fruit compote.
