Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2009 Franciacorta Millesimato Naturalis Extra Brut offers a clean approach with a long succession of citrus, white peach, almond and toasted pine nut. The complexity is moderate yet this is not a wine to underestimate. It lingers long on the palate thanks to spicy flavors of cinnamon, candied fruit and toasted bread that are equally subtle and nuanced. Good acidity and sharp effervescence appears on the close. This blend of 65% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Bianco and 25% Pinot Nero is aged on the lees for 40 months.
