Wine Enthusiast 89 points - This elegant sparkling wine has a subdued fragrance that reveals delicate floral and nut aromas. The palate is more expressive, offering citrus, tropical fruit and roasted almond flavors. The pleasant foamy texture is accompanied by lively acidity..Kerin O'Keefe, December/2013
An elegantly fresh, vivacious and full Franciacorta, characterized by pleasing fruity and floral aromas. Obtained from Chardonnay grapes after more than 24 months on yeasts. Excellent as an aperitif but it can also be served throughout a meal; it is particularly suitable for delicate dishes of fish and white meat.
(100% Chardonnay). Fruit harvested from select hillside vineyards was fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and aged in barrel. Franciacorta must be aged for at least 25 months, of which 18 are on its lees. The maturation period for vintage Franciacorta is 37 months with 30 on its lees.
