This is one of the most accessible and well-priced expressions of high-end (Classic Method) Italian sparkling wines you can find on the market today. The NV Franciacorta '61 Brut (disgorged in 2017) is fresh and zesty with a long and festive set of easy-drinking qualities. You get citrus, stone fruit and sweet almond all backed by persistent perlage. The wine represents a blend of 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Nero aged on the lees for two years. Some 410,000 bottles were produced.

Arturo Ziliani and the team at Guido Berlucchi presented a new wine over the course of 2018. With five years of aging on the yeasts in bottle, the 2011 Franciacorta '61 Brut Nature Rosé Dosaggio Zero has the natural structure and heft to pair with grilled seafood or marinated red shrimp. Like many of its peers in the appellation, this estate is currently enlarging its production. An additional 30 hectares were purchased, bringing the estate total to 115 hectares of vines.
