La Santissima Franciacorta Brut DOCG

Sizes: 750 ml - 1500 ml
Alcoholic content: 12.5% vol.
Grapes: Chardonnay (50%) and Pinot Nero (50%)

Vines: in Gussago, Franciacorta, the DOCG limited area. Special attention is given to the optimization of the landscape, the respect of the territory and the environment. The grapes come from hillside vineyards with clay and limestone loam and loose and gravelly moraine soils, with high-density Guyot training.

Vinification and ageing: the grapes are harvested by hand and placed in 18 kg crates, to keep the bunches perfectly intact during transport to the winery. Immediately after harvesting, the grapes are put into a special press for a soft and gradual crushing, to extract the best part of the juice: the first-pressing must. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with constant control of the fermentation temperatures. The spring following the harvest, the wine is bottled (tirage) and aged on lees for at least 25 months. After d├ęgorgement, the bottles rest in the winery for a further 5 months.

Tasting notes:
Colour: straw yellow of an excellent intensity with soft golden highlights, crystalline. Soft and creamy mousse, of great persistence. Fine and elegant perlage.
Aroma: dry fruit, white flowers and dry flowers.
Palate: full, with an excellent structure, remarkably flavoursome and fresh; an excellent minerality is evident and a long persistence with toasted flavours and the scents of yellow and dry fruit emerging.
Accompaniments: ideal throughout the whole meal, it accompanies typical dishes of the Franciacorta area and exalts dishes of rice, pasta, white meat, fish, fresh and mediummature cheeses.
