This traditional sparkling wine is made in Franciacorta DOCG which is located in the heart of Lombardy (North Italy). The producer is the Monogram winery, which in turn is part of Castel Faglia. This Franciacorta Brut Blanc de Blancs is made from 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Blanc grapes. The harvest takes place mid-August, exclusively manually, after which the grapes are transported in crates and then pressed gently. Primary fermentation 80% in stainless steel barrels and 20% in small oak barrels. Secondary fermentation in the bottle (classical method), followed by a maturation of 24 months.

This delicious bubble has a beautiful straw yellow color with green highlights and has beautiful rich aromas of exotic fruit and citrus fruits. Abundant mousse with a refined and persistent perlage. The taste is rich, soft and balanced with a strong freshness. Advice: drink this wine cool (preferably between 4 and 6 degrees).

This Blanc de Blancs is excellent as an aperitif and also tastes great with various fish species (oysters, caviar, raw fish) and white meat. The wine also really comes into its own with a drink because of a festive occasion. Made with the same grapes as a champagne and also the same production process is used here. In fact the only big difference between a Franciacorta and a Champagne is the price !!
