Franciacorta Brut Rosé DOCG
Pure Pinot Nero grown on the Franciacorta hillsides and picked at the height of ripeness. After being soft pressed, the wine macerates to reach the color of fresh pink rose petals. After its first fermentation in stainless steel, it is bottled on and rests its lees for twenty-five months before dégorgement. Fragrant and delicate, it shows well-balanced floral and fruity aromas of pomegranate and red currant. Non-vintage.
