    I absolutely love the 2011 Franciacorta Dosaggio Zero presented by Contadi Castaldi. This 50-50 blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Nero shows a spectacular level of richness and opulence that comes across with yellow fruit, tropical tones, apricot and buttered almond biscuits. The 2011 vintage was a hot one and that extra heat has added to the overall generosity and suppleness of this delicious sparkling wine. In the mouth, it presents rich, creamy effervescence and a long, fruit-driven finish.  93 by Robert Parker
