The vineyard for Bele Casel’s Extra Brut is elevated and planted not just with Glera, but also a smattering of other old varieties, while the vineyard for the Extra Dry is planted solely to Glera and is less elevated with more iron-rich soils. Due to these conditions, the fruit has more generosity and weight, suiting the Extra Dry style better, though the freshness of the acidity is classic Bele Casel. The nose is more lifted with golden apples, ripe pear and hints of acacia and wisteria. This has more richness and lightly softening sweetness, but balance is the key here, and it is beautifully pitched with impeccable line and carry. R&R
