Vintage, or in Italian “millesimato”. A Franciacorta wine to accompany your entire meal, bringing out the flavour of starters, rice and pasta dishes, fine white meats, fish and even mature cheeses.
Chardonnay (80%) and Pinot Nero (20%), from the best Berlucchi estate vineyards, many planted at high density.
9,500 kg of grapes per hectare with 40% must yield, equivalent to 5,060 bottles per hectare.
Gentle, gradual pressing of clusters and fractioning of must; alcoholic fermentation in steel tanks with maturation of the best lots in oak barrique, left to age for 6 months sur lie.
Assemblage of the cuvée in the spring following harvest, exclusively with wine from that vintage. Second fermentation in the bottles and maturation sur lie for a minimum of 30 months followed by an additional 3 months after disgorgement.
Standard bottle 750 ml, Magnum 1.5 l, Jeroboam 3 l.
Abundant, soft mousse with fine, lingering bead.
Straw-yellow with antique-gold highlights.
Intense, lingering and complex, with notes of ripe apricot and peach blending into impressions of Chantilly crème.
Elegant structure, with exceptional balance between its rounded, mature weight and crisp, tangy acidity.
Enjoy this wine with all courses of a meal, since it enhances the flavour of starters, first courses based on pasta and rice, lighter meats, fish and even aged cheeses.
