Wine Club May 2023:

"Frizzante, or as some of us love to say “Pét Nat that hails from Italy,” is a sparkling wine that is bottled before fermentation completes. Carbon dioxide, a natural biproduct of fermentation, is trapped inside the bottle creating smooth velvety bubbles! Gioco di Vino comes from the Northeast corner of Italy, the Veneto, and is made from 100% Chardonnay that spends 1 week on its skins. That makes this wine fit right in the Orange or Skin Contact Pét Nat category. It shows beautifully with some air and patience. At first I got tropical fruit notes along with honeycomb and bruised lemon citrus. As it opened more apricot, nectarine, flowers, and honey emerged. This one is pretty easy-drinking and shines in warmer weather (Hello Spring!). I recommend chilling it completely before SLOWLY opening, and once popped swirl in the sediment that is sitting at the bottom of the bottle. You’ll thank me!"
