Franciacorta docg Brut Doppio Erre Di
Equilibrium between opposite
MATURITY IN HARMONY WITH LIGHTNESS
Doppio Erre Di (Double RD) stands for Ritardato Degorgement Recentemente Degorgiato (delayed disgorgement, recently disgorged), in the sense that the disgorgement (i.e. the final stage of production in the Franciacorta method) after long months of ageing is intentionally delayed and that the bottles are delivered shortly after they have been disgorged (as indicated on the label) to guarantee the maximum freshness. Produced using only the prime must from the first pressing, a part of the base wine is fermented in barriques. The base wine is aged for at least 30 months in contact with the yeasts.
Sublime, balanced and smooth. A radiant wine with rich aromas that reawakens the senses for an irresistible experience.
Bright appearance, vivid straw colour with very slight coppery specks of gold; the aromas emerge immediately to show elegance and finesse, lime – tree and hawthorn blossoms accompany white ripe fruits, surrounded by shades of liquorice. The fresh and warm tones alternate each other, the fermentation yeasts play a crucial role, balanced by barley malt and peanuts.
To the palate the production process highlights creaminess and ripe fruit, no roughness blocking drinkability. It is soft with a very pleasant salty finish.
