Sensi Pure 18K Gold Blanc de Blancs Sparkling Wine 2018 Italy (Demi-Sec)
Chardonnay and other white grapes
A couple things to note about this wine; 1. It’s a Vino Spumante or sparkling wine as opposed to a Prosecco. This means it can come from a larger area in Italy and can use whatever grapes they want. 2. This wine is a Demi-Sec which means it’s sweeter than the standard Brut or Extra Dry styles we tend to see.
Having said that, this wine has wonderful balance. The grapes are purposely picked early to hold on to as much acidity as possible. That acidity really harnesses the sweetness and creates a wine that is very drinkable no matter what style of bubbles you prefer. You can expect to find tropical notes along with tree fruits like apple and pear.
Pair with light appetizers or just enjoy as is.
Sensi Pure 18K Gold Pinot Noir Rose Sparkling Wine NV Italy (Brut)
100% Pinot Noir
The grapes for this 100% Pinot Noir sparkling wine are picked just before they hit total ripeness to maintain some acidity and balance in the wine. This is a brut, so the wine is dry but because it’s all Pinot Noir, you get wonder expressions of dark fruit and a greater sense of body and structure in the wine. Like it’s counterpart, the Blanc de Blancs, this is a Vino Spumante (sparkling wine) rather than a Prosecco but I think you’ll find this wine to be delicious and a wonderful addition to Valentine’s Day or any other day.
Pair with light meat appetizers like chicken or pork or just enjoy the moment with a great glass of wine.
