2013 Monogram Cuvee Millesimato Franciacorta Brut DOCG
Another beautiful sparkling wine from winery Monogram . A delicious bubble, creamy sparkling with a fine perlage. The Millesimato Franciacorta is straw yellow in color with great and intense scents of ripe fruit and citrus. Full body, full of flavor with exotic fruit, peach. Lush, supple, intense and spicy with good acidity. Served chilled at its best (preferably between 4 and 6 degrees).
This traditional wine is made in Franciacorta DOCG which is located in the heart of Lombardy (Northern Italy). Winery Monogram, part of Castel Faglia, makes this Millesimato Franciacorta Brut from 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Blanc grapes. The harvest is exclusively manual, aging 'sur lie' for at least 36 months. and then bottle aging for several more years.
This Millesimato is excellent as an aperitif and also tastes delicious with various types of fish (oysters, caviar, raw fish) and white meat. The wine also comes into its own with a drink because of a festive occasion. Made with the same grapes as a champagne and the same production process is used here. Actually the only big difference between a Franciacorta and a Champagne is the price!!
“Franciacorta with vintage year. Fruit from 2010. A somewhat cooler year. Elegant, sleek & rich. The saltiness of a Finosherry, but with a peach back-up. Almond bitters. And those ravishing acids. Promise me you will never call it Prosecco”. Rated by Harold Hamersma in De Grote Hamersma 2018 with a 9+
“Very good – Excellent “Flowers, ripe pear, peach, citrus. Juicy, lush, thick, grab, good acidity”. Reviewed by Perswijn Magazine.
“Even better than the previous Vintage. Now only with white grapes. More elegant. Tight and rich. Still with the saltiness of a Finosherry, but with a peach back-up. Also, a light note. And again those ravishing acids. Really very good”. Rated by Harold Hamersma in De Grote Hamersma 2017 with a 9.5.
