This “tailor-made” Cuvée is a Franciacorta Riserva from 100% Chardonnay grapes from the 2009 harvest from the vineyards owned by Borgonato di Corte Franca. The base wines were aged both in steel and in barrique, with partial malolactic fermentation to ensure consistency and roundness.
After resting sur lie for 120 months, a moderate quantity of dosage syrup – 3 grammes per litre – was added to the dégorgement, in order to bring out the wine’s authentic and vibrant personality.
“Cuvée J.R.E. N° 5 represents the ultimate expression of the craft of those who make wine and those who present it,” says Luca Marchini, president of J.R.E. “This is not just a partnership, but a fully-fledged initiative that has now reached its fourth act.”INFORMATION SHEET
