Another beautiful sparkling wine from Monogram winery. A delicious bubble, creamy sparkling with a fine perlage. The Millesimato Franciacorta has a straw yellow color with great and intense scents of ripe fruit and citrus. Full body, full of flavor with exotic fruit, peach. Lush, smooth, intense and spicy with good acidity. Best served chilled (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 done exclusively by hand, maturation 'sur lie' for at least 36 months. and then several years of bottle aging.

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 very well with drinks due to 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 harvest year. Fruit from 2010. A somewhat cooler year. Elegant, sleek & rich. The saltiness of a Fino sherry, but with a peach backing. Almond bitters. And those ravishing acids. Promise me you will never call it Prosecco”. Judged by Harold Hamersma in De Grote Hamersma 2018 with a 9+

"Very good – Excellent “Floral, ripe pear, peach, citrus. Juicy, luscious, thick, grippy, good acidity”. Reviewed by Perswijn Magazine.

“Even better than the previous Vintage. Now only with white grapes. More elegant. Tight and rich. Still with that saltiness like in a Fino sherry, but with a peach backing. Also light nutty. And again those ravishing acids. Really very good”. Judged by Harold Hamersma in De Grote Hamersma 2017 with a 9.5.

Vineyard for 2014 Monogram Cuvee Millesimato Franciacorta Brut

Monogram winery is part of Castel Faglia, and is located in the Italian town of Calino di Cazzago San Martino. Franciacorta DOCG is located in the middle of Lombardy (Northern Italy) in the province of Brescia. The area includes 17 hectares of vineyards topped with Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco and a small amount of Pinot Nero grapes. On the grounds of Monogram is a castle (hence the name Castel Faglia) which is located at the highest point of all Franciacorta, making it very favorable from the sun. Thanks to the rocky soil and the microclimate, this area has unparalleled properties, resulting in a very unique grape. The area has a continental climate, which is interspersed with a mild Mediterranean climate, resulting in temperature increases that often cause heavy hailstorms in the summer. Furthermore, the grapes grow here, as one of the few in this region, on terrace vineyards. Monogram is well known in Italy for the fresh wines that this beautiful winery makes, and also for the fact that only white grape varieties are used.

The estate has been owned by the Cavicchioli family, winegrowers and producers of award-winning and well-known wines since 1928. The cellar is surrounded by forests and vineyards and built under a hill to reduce its environmental and energy impact. The underground section where the bottles are kept for many years of aging guarantees the best low temperatures in summer and avoids temperature fluctuations in every season.
