2011 Franciacorta Zero DOCG - 6 pack

Case of 6 bottles

Varietals: 50% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir

Vinification/Ageing: first ageing - 7 months, partly in steel and partly in barriques; aged on the lees from 36 to 40 months.

Alcohol: 12.5%

Description: A Franciacorta of great personality, consisting in a selection of Pinot nero grapes from a specific morainic soil that gives the grape its full-bodied flavour, which carries over well to the wine. It has a very precise flavour, complex bouquet, with hints of grapefruit, blackcurrant, and walnut hull, and unusual traces of laurel and green tobacco. Modulated and sharp-flavoured, structured and full-bodied, fast-paced, it has a long and pleasantly persistent finish.
