Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Made from 100% Pinot Noir grown in Lombardia, Giacosa's Brut Spumante is made in the traditional Champagne method and a 'blanc des noirs  style. Ripe fruit is complimented by a twist of minerality and an alluringly creamy texture. One of the greatest sparklers in all of Italy.  Although Giacosa is one of Piemonte's foremost producers (of Barolo and Barbaresco), he elects to produce this 100% Pinot Nero spumante in Piemonte's neighboring region of Lombardia—formerly a part of Piemonte—specifically in the Oltrepo Pavese zone. While many styles of wine are permitted in this region, the DOC regulations specifically provide for a metodo classico spumante composed of 70% Pinot Nero. In recent years, this region has attracted the notice of Italian wine connoisseurs and its terroir—marked by slopes rich in limestone—supports the contention that the area is suited to the production of wines of substance. Oltrepo Pavese's local varieties include Riesling Renano, Riesling Italico, and Uva Rara.  First bottled in 1983, the initial fermentation of this sparkler is carried out in stainless steel. Following secondary fermentation in bottle and hand riddling, the wine ages on the lees for a period of 24 to 30 months prior to release. Subtly delineated by scents of fruit and yeast, Giacosa's Brut is elegant and marked by a persistent perlage; it is dry and lively on the palate.
