Setting a high standard, this elegant sparkling wine from Franciacorta DOCG experiences extensive ageing sur lie
This Italian dry sparkling wine comes from Franciacorta DOCG. It is produced using the méthode classique, which is similar to the way Champagne is made. This Brut Cuvée no.7 is even more special, and has been aged sur lie for twice as long as non-vintage Champagne. This allows the wine to develop complex aromas and texture. It comes from a vineyard stretched across a hill facing South-West, in Provaglio d’Iseo in Lombardy. Hand-harvesting took place in late August through early September, with the best grapes carefully selected. The wine is slowly fermented in stainless steel tanks, at the low temperature of 16°C, in order to preserve the delicate fragrance of the grape. The base wine is then matured for seven months in stainless steel, before bottling sur lie to age and develop for another 30 months.
Tasting notes: Pale yellow colour. Elegant aromas of ripe peach, hints of honey, butter, toast bread and almonds. This wine is dry with a full body and medium alcohol. Tangy and fresh, with a balanced aroma and high acidity. It has a creamy mousse and a long, elegant finish.
