2016 Franciacorta DOCG Brut Nature "Victus", Lombardy, Italy

Fresh-buttery, somewhat yeasty and vegetal nose with bright yellow fruity and a little vegetable notes as well as a hint of dark berries in the background. Straightforward, somewhat developed, again predominantly bright fruit, buttery and vegetable tones, delicately nutty in the background, relatively moderate, fine mousseux, a little protein, some persistence, quite dry style, mushroomy nuances, good to very good finish. Not quite in top form anymore.

Fest gewirkte, reife, herb-saftige Frucht, recht feines, eher moderates Mousseux, nussige und buttrige Aromen, ein wenig Brioche, gute Substanz und Nachhaltigkeit, im Hintergrund mineralische Töne, eine Spur Rauch, hat Griff, gewisse Tiefe, recht komplex, sehr guter, fester, herb-saftiger und griffiger Abgang. Sehr überzeugend.
