Soil

Stony soil, moderately calcareous.

Tasting Notes

It has a beautiful coral pink color, very bright, with a fine and persistent perlage. An original Franciacorta, in a modern style, making skillful use of the pinot nero grapes. The nose has clear notes of wild berries, fresh rose petals, hints of apple and tropical fruit. The mouth is structured, crisp and lively, tangy and sensually upbeat. The finish is long and well balanced.

Vinification

Soft pressing after cold (54/76f) maceration of about 3-4 hours. Cold settling. Inoculation with selected yeast. Fermentation of 20 days in stainless steel. Partial malolactic fermentation. The still wine ages for 7 months in steel and barriques. Aged for 24-30 months sur lie.
