Walter Speller (Jancis Robinson) scores/notes for SoloUva

The following score and tasting note appeared on JancisRobinson.com on October 26, 2105.

SoloUva, Brut NV Franciacorta 17/20
Drink 2015-2020

Grapes from 6 ha of rented vineyards. Vintage 2011. 100% Chardonnay. Liqueur de tirage was grape must and the dosage, also using must, was 3 g/l (‘tiraggio con mosto, sboccatura con mosto’). A touch of iodine on the nose, then green fruit, lemon and bread rind. Generous, yet taut and with notes of brioche. Lively lemony fruit with real depth yet elegant. Fine and lasting CO2.
