Great bubble from Franciacorta, Lombardia wine region . Made by the special winery Corteaura, founded in 2009 by Federico Fossati who only had one dream: to produce a wine of superior quality in an area with a natural vocation for grape growing. It had to be: a product of absolute top quality, meticulously cared for and defined down to the smallest detail and that was certainly achieved with this delicious Franciacorta Brut.

The wine is made from 100% Chardonnay grapes that are harvested manually at the beginning of August, selected and carefully transported in small boxes. The grapes are gently pressed, fermented in steel tanks at controlled temperature (16 ° C). The basic wines are produced separately for each vineyard and then very skillfully assembled to make the cuvee. Fermentation in the bottle for a period of 30 months in cellars at the constant temperature of 12-15 ° C.

The wine is straw yellow in color and has a fine persistent perlage. On the nose floral and slightly fruity with the typical bread aroma that you get when fermented in the bottle. The wine tastes harmonious, fine, persistent and elegant, bouquet with the well-known characteristics of fermentation in the bottle, hints of bread crust and yeast enriched with subtle hints of citrus and nuts (almonds, hazelnuts and white dry figs).

This beautiful bubble is extremely suitable as an aperitif and also fits very well with dishes based on fish or vegetables, cold pork, white meat, white meat sauce, breaded veal chop, ripe cheese.

Recommended serving temperature: 6 ° C.
