Malolactic fermentation, and racking before assemblage of the Cuvée. In Spring the liqueur de tirage is added, the bottle receives crown cap, and is laid down to develop effervescence.
||The tiered-up bottles remain in our 17th century cellars for 36 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 three months before release.
