Hints of pastry and anise are backed by firm acidity in this harmonious Franciacorta, with the finely detailed mousse carrying flavors of grainy pear, blanched almond and spring blossom. Lovely, with a racy, saline-laced finish. Drink now through 2026. 900 cases made, 100 cases imported.

WINE ENTHUSIAST

Enticingly delicate aromas of chamomile, white stone fruit and bread crust mingle with whiffs of orange-citrus zest on this dry, elegant sparkler. Incredibly youthful for an 11-year-old wine, it’s well balanced, featuring mature yellow apple, white peach, ginger and a dollop of vanilla set against a silky perlage. Fresh acidity brightens the rich flavors. This proves the serious aging potential of top wines from the denomination.

Unique

This is Franciacorta at its absolute best. A reserve for special occasions, it pairs pleasantly with dishes that are rich in flavour and complexity. It can accompany robust first courses, and second courses of steamed fish or meat.

GRAPES

Pinot Noir (100%), grown in two estate vineyards in Borgonato, both planted to a high density: the hillside Quindicipiò, and Brolo, facing Palazzo Lana Berlucchi.

 

YIELD

8,100 kg of grapes/hectare, with a yield in must of 28%, equivalent to 3,024 bottles/hectare.

 

VINIFICATION

The whole clusters are pressed gently and slowly, producing the free-run must, which is fermented in steel, then the finest lots of wine mature sur lie in oak barrels for 6 months.

 

MATURATION

In the spring following the harvest, the cuvée is assembled from the most exceptional lots of wine, all from that same harvest. The blend re-ferments in the final bottle and matures sur lie a minimum of 10 years, followed by a further 6 months’ bottle-ageing after disgorging.

 

STYLE

Extra Brut.

 

SIZES AVAILABLE

750ml standard bottle and 1.5 l. magnum.
