Review

Birthdays, celebrations, Christmas festivities... It is difficult in Italy to find someone who has not raised a toast with a bottle of Berlucchi on some occasion, and the truth is that this famous winery has the distinction of having been the first to identify possibilities of sparkling wine production in the Franciacorta region. Thanks to the intuition, courage and determination of Guido Berlucchi and Franco Ziliani, the winery's owner and oenologist respectively, Berlucchi since the 1960s (the decade to which their sparkling wine range '61 is dedicated) has been the leading winery in the Italian traditional method.

Cellarius Brut is made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes grown exclusively on estate-owned parcels. The base wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks with the exception of a small amount which undergoes its alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in barrels; this base wine reposes afterwards on its lees for a minimum of 30 months.

Served in a glass, under a quickly dispersing layer of mousse, we encounter a straw-coloured wine with an abundance of fine bubbles. On the nose, it displays some primary aromas of bread crust, citrus and white fruits, along with an elegant mineral note. On the palate, its freshness and tastiness are predominant, with a delightful, citrusy finish.
