Tasting notes

Color

pale pink with delicate nuances of copper and old gold. A soft and persistent mousse with an excellent perlage.

Bouquet

with classic tones, which evoke the vine, yellow peaches and blackcurrants. An excellent complexity and slight mineral scents.

Food pairing

ideal to accompany rich and tasty hors d’oeuvres of meat, cold cuts or fish. Tartare of veal or beef, tartare of red tuna. Panfried red meats served as a main course.

Description

The Pinot Nero grapes are harvested by hand and rest in 18 kg crates to keep the bunches in perfect condition during transport to the winery. Immediately after harvesting, the destemmed grapes are put into a special press for maceration. This is followed by a soft and gradual crushing to extract the best part of the juice: the first-pressing must, delicate in colour and with light pink nuances. 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 yeast for at least 30 months. After dégorgement, the bottles rest in the winery for a further 5 months. The base made up exclusively of Pinot Nero gives this Franciacorta particular body and vigour. Serve at 8 - 10 °C. It accompanies surprisingly also elaborate and structured dishes
