Lots of sage and wild herb emerge from the bouquet of the 2013 Pomino Metodo Classico Brut Leonia. This is the first time I have tasted this sparkling wine from the Frescobaldi family made in the Pomino appellation. Background aromas offer wild berry, citrus and crushed mineral. The effervescence is soft and foamy.
The extended refinement on the yeasts bequeaths the wine with an initially intense aroma of bread crust and patisserie , which give way to a fresh bouquet of spring flowers with citrusy hints before ending with spiced nutmeg and thyme leaves. The wine’s effervescence is persistent and the sapidity noteworthy. Leonia Brut is the perfect union of bubbly Chardonnay, expressed through its grapefruit notes, and the generous body of Pinot Nero. The finish is pleasantly alcoholic with liquorice notes
