“Light and airy, this lovely sparkler has inviting aromas of ripe white stone fruit, spring blossoms and baking spice. On the dry, foaming palate, an elegant perlage and fresh acidity accompany ripe yellow apple, Bartlett pear, vanilla pastry cream and a hint of white almond.” Wine Enthusiast 95 points
“The 2016 Brut Grave di Stecca showcases a brilliant golden color in the glass, with a dazzling bouquet of peach preserves and sweetly spiced florals contrasted by wild herbs and crushed stone. This is creamy in texture yet angular in feel, pinching at the cheeks with zesty acidity while also delivering masses of ripe orchard fruits and inner flowery perfumes that arch across the palate. It leaves hints of ginger and a bitter twang of toasted hazelnut to linger, yet the end note here is one of cleansing freshness. The 2016 is not about power or fruit; it’s about delicacy and graceful impact. I love it. The Grave di Stecca is a single–vineyard hillside Clos of old Glera vines in Valdobbiadene.” Antonio Galloni Vinous 94 points
“Powerfully bright lemon yellow with green accents. Distinctive, subtle aroma of herbs, thyme, ripe pineapple and passionfruit, plus the finest brioche notes and nut butter. Builds up richly, fills the whole palate, fine-boned and multilayered, harmonious, complex and persistent on the finish.” Falstaff 93 points
“A rich mix on the nose here, with cider apple, yuzu and hints of green tea and almond. Intense fruit on the palate, too, with a medium fizz and a tasty, spicy finish. Lots of character here.” James Suckling 92 points
