Franciacorta docg Brut Rosè 2011

Tranquillity

PINOT NERO THAT PUTS ITSELF AT THE SERVICE OF PLEASURE

Obtained from 100% pinot nero grapes, only the prime must from the first pressing is used. After a very brief maceration of a few hours to obtain the desired colour, a part of the base wine is fermented in barriques. The wine evolves for a minimum of 44 months in contact with the yeasts before disgorgement.

Sensual, fruity and enveloping. A wine with a volcanic soul that seduces and fascinates with its romantic pleasantness and its uncontainable explosion of aromas.

ORGANOLEPTIC CHARACTERISTICS

Beautiful, shining salmon pink; aromas playing between fresh and ripe, wild strawberry alternating with blood orange, the nectarine peach gives way to redcurrants; it is articulated but at the finish of the aromas there remain fragrance and a warm flower. To the palate it further manifests citrus nectar, pomegranate juice and it has an excellent roundness; it lingers very well, maintaining an excellent drinkability, closing on tones of bark and tamarind, the freshness remains very inviting, merging right to the end with the creamy effervescence.

COMBINATIONS RECOMMENDED BY NICOLA BONERA
