After a minimum of 25 months following the harvest, the bottle is riddled to concentrate the sediment against the temporary cap, then disgorged and packaged.
Bouquet that is still crisp and fruity, and quite long lasting.
In the mouth it is attractively dry, with a velvety texture and exceptionally fine balance. The bead boasts dense, pin-point bubbles, with a foamy mousse seems almost endless.

History Year first produced: 1979
Origin Vineyards in the commune of Passirano, at the foot of the Monterotondo and Fantecolo hills, with east-southeast exposure.
Soil composition Level and slightly undulating terrain in loose morainic soils of medium fertility, with medium-deep gravel-pebble mixture.
Cultivation system Spurred cordon
Yield per hectare 80 quintals of grapes/hectare = 52 hectolitres/hectare.
Harvest Hand picking into small boxes, between the end of August and the first decade of September.
Vinification The clusters are gently pressed in a pneumatic press, and the first and second fractions are kept separate. After a 12-hour gravity settling at 13°C, the must is inoculated with cultured yeasts and the wine ferments, part at controlled temperatures in stainless steel, part (30%) in small oak barrels, and then goes through malolactic fermentation. The cuvée is assembled in March, the liqueur di tirage added and the bottles capped, and the bottles are laid down for the prise de mousse.
Ageing The tiered-up bottles remain in our 17th-century cellars for 24 months before riddling. The sediment is then removed and they are given the Brut-style liqueur d’expedition, then corked and wired. This Franciacorta then rests in the bottle a further two years before release.
Alcohol content 12.00% by volume
Production year 130,000 bottles
Sulphites Contains sulphites
Pairing Its distinctive, refreshing crispness makes it a wonderful partner to all dishes featuring fish, and it is perfect enjoyed by itself as an aperitif.
