Reviews and Ratings

Mario Cagnetta rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Here is a very good deal if you like sparkling wine. Rotari is a very famous brand in Italy and is very recognized in relation to the quality and price. This product comes from one of the most famous area for the champenoise method but of course it can not be named Champagne. So In Italy it is called classic method and finds the best region for producing in Franciacorta Docg, in the heart of Lombardy, and in Trento Doc in the North East. Rotari Brut is made only with Chardonnay grapes and it rests on lees for 24 months. It is a very good wine for aperitif and it goes very well with a risotto with Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and mussles .
Visual examination: Rotari presents a pale golden yellow color with a fine perlage and moderately numerous bubbles.
Olfactory examination: moderately intense and complex with a fine quality, this sparkling wine has a floral and fragrant bouquet with scents of pineapples, licorice, fennel and anise, white flowers and of course a buttery notes coming from the yeast.
Taste-olfactory examination: dry and moderate alcohol level of 12,5% and moderately smooth this sparkling wine has a very good freshness coming from the acids enhanced by the presence of mineral substances. In the aftertaste it shows itself as a balanced, moderately intense, moderately persistent and fine quality wine with a good and delicate body. Ready to drink and best served at 8 Celsius degrees. Very good deal just for $18 at the Lcbo.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
