Tasting notes

Color

white gold with light yellow straw reflections, brilliant and crystalline. Soft and creamy mousse, of great persistence. Fine and elegant perlage.

Bouquet

Pinot Noir is found in its highest expression. Good texture and full-bodied, but also creamy with a fresh and persistent after taste.

Food pairing

ideal throughout the whole meal, it accompanies typical dishes of the Franciacorta area and exalts dishes of rice, pasta, white meat, fish, fresh and medium mature cheeses.

Description

This wine is made from a careful selection of Pinot Noir grapes grown on our hillside vineyards with calcareous clay soils. All its qualitative peculiarities, from bunch to wine, are preserved thanks to the way we manage our fields. However, our manual harvesting and careful wine-making process also play a key role. The bottling phase, for the second fermentation, is what happens next. This is characterised by a long 24-month ageing process in contact with yeasts. The latter happens at controlled temperatures and away from light sources. Our bottle's unique shape allows an optimal ageing between yeasts and wine.

This is an ORGANIC certified product

We only use organic farming. In fact, we do not treat our crops with synthetic molecules but only substances of natural origin. We do not use phosphate mineral fertilisers, but only organic compost, if necessary, which provides organic matter for the soil. Furthermore, we do not weed chemically but use mechanical means under the rows, a more expensive practice which is better for the soil. Lastly, we do not use synthetic fungicide but only copper and sulphur, in controlled and ever decreasing doses.
