Enticing aromas and flavors of ripe strawberry and raspberry fruit are set on the fine, lively bead in this clean-cut, mouthwatering rosé, with a chalky underpinning. Lightly spiced on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2024.

JAMES SUCKLING

A fruity, dark-colored rosé with dried rose petals and hints of bubblegum. Full-bodied and quite heavy, but there’s a touch of savoriness, imparted by the otherwise frothy bubbles. Drink now.

Kerin O’Keefe

Bright and savory, this refreshing, polished sparkler boasts alluring aromas of juicy raspberry, wild cherry, baking spice and a whiff of bread crust. The inviting aromas follow over to the vibrant palate along with a continuous refined perlage. A tangy candied nectarine note closes the finish.

The rosé for those who want something more from a rosé. Excellent as an aperitif, it is pleasant match for cold cuts and savoury first courses and cheeses, even mature ones. When paired with shellfish, its structure is nicely accentuated.

GRAPES

Pinot Nero (60%) and Chardonnay (40%) from the best vineyards in the 19 municipal areas of Franciacorta.

 

YIELD

9,000 kg of grapes per hectare with 55% must yield, equivalent to 6,600 bottles per hectare.

 

VINIFICATION

Gentle, gradual pressing of clusters with fractioning of the must; alcoholic fermentation in steel vats. A few hours’ maceration of the Pinot Nero on the skins (rosé maceration) to emphasize the aromas and hue of the grape variety.

 

MATURATION

Assemblage of the cuvée in the spring following harvest. Second fermentation in the bottles and maturation sur lie for a minimum of 24 months followed by an additional 2 months after disgorgement.

 

STYLE

Brut.

 

SIZES AVAILABLE

Standard bottle 750 ml, Magnum 1.5l, Jeroboam 3l.

 

SENSORY CHARACTERISTICS: APPEARANCE

Soft, foamy mousse with long-lasting cordon around the glass; fine, lingering bead.

 

SENSORY CHARACTERISTICS: COLOUR

Intense pink, varies slightly according to the vintage, due to the different ripeness levels of phenolic compounds in the Pinot Nero.

 

SENSORY CHARACTERISTICS: BOUQUET

Elegant hints of wild berries and ripe fruit, nicely blended with subtle nuances of yeast and crusty bread. Heady, warm quality from the brief Pinot Nero maceration on the skins during vinification.

 

SENSORY CHARACTERISTICS: PALATE

Refined and elegant with exceptional acidity and full body. The acidity is balanced well by the medium-high sugar content.

 

PAIRINGS

Perfect as an aperitif, it will also pair well with various cold meats and charcuterie, full-flavoured first courses and fully matured cheeses. Pairing with shellfish enhances its impressive structure.

 

SERVING TEMPERATURE

6 – 8 °C.
