Franciacorta Brut Millesimato DOCG
A vintage Chardonnay from elevated hillside vineyards. Grapes are soft pressed and 70% of the must ferments in French oak barrels on its lees for six months. The other 30% ferments in stainless steel. The wine is then blended and spends at least eighteen to twenty-four months on its lees before dégorgement. Rich and intense with lovely persistent perlage, distinct elegance with aromas of vanilla and warm pastries. The epitome of finesse.
