Vinification/Ageing: Soft pressing after cold maceration of about 3-4 hours. Fermentation in stainless steel tank for 20 days followed by partial malolactic fermentation. Refinement for 7 months, partly in stainless steel and partly in barrique, prior to bottling. Aged on the lees for 24 to 30 months.
Description: Very bright pink in colour with a fine and persistent perlage. A bold, modern and intriguing Franciacorta. The nose detects clear notes of small fruits, bilberry, blackberry, raspberry and strawberry, and rose petals. A note of hay in the finish. In the mouth it is voluminous, full bodied, smooth and well balanced.
