Franciacorta docg Extra Brut Grande Taille 2013
THE RICH EXPRESSION OF A VINTAGE WITHOUT COMPROMISES
Produced using only the prime must from the first pressing, a preponderant part of the base wine is fermented in barriques and then remains in contact with the yeasts for at least 60 months.
Refined, bewitching and structured. It is born of a perfect marriage between charismatic power and sublime finesse, an elixir for hearts and palates.
Full, bright straw colour with evident tendency towards golden; nice aroma of medium strength that will evolves over the years thanks to a very direct tasting. We can perceive clean salty notes and aromas of sea such as oyster, together with sap, herbs and roots, paprika and pepper notes. To the palate it is explosive, very direct, sharp and with a remarkable and energizing freshness, and great sapidity. With the raising of temperature the perspective becomes wider giving to the wine more generosity, an enchanting character, and sweeter tones.
