Enrico Gatti Franciacorta Brut Nature NV DOCG
(Lombardy, Italy) - [VM 90] [WE 90] [JS 90]

About the Winery:
Erbusco, is located in the heart of Franciacorta, and is home to a family-owned, boutique winery founded by Enrico Gatti in 1975. Gattis first career was in the building industry, but soon became fascinated by the world of Franciacorta. Shortly after that, Gatti decided to make a career change, grow his property, expand his wine knowledge, and put together a team to pursue his new fascination.

The winery started out as a single vineyard, one hectare in size, which was planted in 1975. Since then the winery has grown to include seventeen hectares, 42 acres, under vine. The vineyards are located at 656-820 feet above sea level, where the vines are Guyot-trained and grow on Franciacortas classic morainic terrain.

The total production is around 12,500 bottles a year.

85% Chardonnay & 15% Pinot Nero hails from 15-25 year old, Guyot-trained vines, southerly exposed, and mineral-rich, hillside morainic soil at at 720-790 feet above sea level (around 220-240 meters). 

Tasting Notes


Brilliant straw yellow color with a fine and persistent perlage. The olfactory bouquet is composed of notes of citrus and bread crust, followed by traces of hazelnut, hay and chalk. The first impact flavor appears savory, resulting then fresh and satisfying. Good structure, with a mineral finish and a very persistent finish.

Ratings & Reviews


90 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Aromas of wild flower, yellow stone fruit and a whiff of hazelnut float out of the glass. The vibrant palate offers peach, yellow apple and nectarine alongside a hint of brioche. A lively refined perlage provides the backdrop." Kerin O'Keefe (4/1/2018)

90 Points - Vinous Media:
" Bright yellow. Aromas of tangerine, apple and pear, plus a hint of musky herbs. Juicy and very fruity, offering crisp acidity and a pungent element of orange zest that provides lift and added complexity. Finishes clean and brisk with noteworthy length. A blend of 85% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Nero." - Ian d'Agata (12/2018)

90 Points - James Suckling:
"Lots of sliced-lemon and white-peach character follows through to a full body, with a soft texture and a fresh finish. Lively, clean, focused and pretty." (Nov 2014)

Fever Tree Premium Club Soda
(200ml 4-PACK)

By using soft spring water, bicarbonate of soda and a high level of carbonation, we've have created a delicious soda water with a delicate aroma. Perfect for bringing out the best flavours of the finest whiskies.

Taste:
Our Premium Soda Water has a silky smooth texture created by using the finest spring water (which has a low mineral content) and a high level of carbonation. Our Soda Water has no aroma so it can effectively bring to life the flavours of the premium spirit it's being mixed with.

Key Ingredients:
Our Soda Water is our simplest product. After our natural spring water is carbonated with lots of very fine bubbles, we add Bicarbonate of Soda, which is used to add a minerality that enhances naturally occuring flavours in the spirits it's paired with.
