NV Rinaldi Joyful Spumante Extra Dry - 93 PTS - GOLD - BTI

bti gold 2023"Golden yellow color. Aromas and flavors of hazelnut, cocoa, and vanilla, dried cherry multi grain bread, valencia orange, and over ripe melon with a satiny, bright, effervescent, dry light-to-medium body and a stimulating, medium-length finish with notes of fruit and nut multigrain biscuit with dried red fruits, toasted hazelnut, watermelon rind, and lime zest. Citrus forward and bright with a subtle hint of salinity makes this sparkling completely crushable yet sophisticated enough to bring to dinner."

iwinereview"Pale in color, Joyful offers reticent scents of pears and apples. It has a nice, creamy mouth feel and light orchard fruit flavors. Finishes on the dry side despite 14 g/L
RS. Pleasant by itself but would also be a good mixer. A blend of 85% Barbera, 10% Cortese, and 5% Moscato from Italy’s Piedmont region."
