Refermentation in the bottle:
obtained with Franciacorta method in the company’s underground cellars. Maturation for thirty-three months on yeast lees before disgorging.
particularly fine and complex, it smells rich of exotic and ripe fruit sensations: pineapple, Williams pear notes and with a little inkling of quince apple, of flowers: from lime blossom to camomile; of lightly toasted hazelnut which finishes in a vanilla hint, of acacia honey, with elegant biscuit pan brioche crust notes.
excellent structure and creaminess, soft, tangy and with a good touch of tartness blended with wine’s richness, long and persistent with white fruit notes, lightly balsamic vegetal and with hazelnut nougat in the after-taste.
