NV Terre Gaie Pinot Nero Veneto IGT

This Italian bubbly is labeled as Brut but I’m guessing the RS is at the higher end of that range. Nearly as deep in color as a Tavel. Small but aggressive bead. Strawberry and toast on the nose. Similar flavors with some chalkiness and minerality. Enjoyable if a bit simple, 87-88. First had this wine in the summer as part or a 4-course pairing that a local wine bar did in partnership with a small Italian restaurant. They paired this with the dessert course of mixed berries with mascarpone, which worked well. We tried it with a savory breakfast (for dinner) and it didn’t work that well. It’s much more enjoyable on its own, and with a cookie.
