Mirabella: the elegant class of Franciacorta in six magnificent and prestigious bubbles
Perugia, Italy
Thursday, May 25th, 2017
This month's DiWineTaste event had as protagonist one of the historical wineries of Franciacorta which strongly contributed to the prestige of Italian bubbles: Mirabella. Founded in 1979 by wine maker Teresio Schiavi and engineer Giacomo Cavalli, the famous winery of Rodengo Saiano is, still today, one of the main and indisputable protagonists of Franciacorta. To the evening took part Ms. Marta Poli - sales and marketing manager of the winery of Rodengo Saiano - whom accounted to the over one hundred participants the peculiarities of Franciacorta and the six wines tasted during the event. The evening started with Franciacorta Brut S.A. - made with Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc grapes - a wine that perfectly introduced the style characterizing Mirabella's bubbles, in particular the contribution of Pinot Blanc, one of the historical varieties used for the production of bubbles in this territory. It is then the turn of Franciacorta Satèn S.A., made with 100% Chardonnay, in which the round and characteristic creamy style is added to the gentle contribution of wood giving a higher complexity to the wine. The third wine of the evening has been Franciacorta Rosé S.A. - made with the three grapes provided by the disciplinary, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc - a classic method of perfect elegance in which Pinot Noir, besides giving the beautiful pale pink color, gives an aromatic profile of pleasing class. If the first three Francoacorta wines expressed the well known Mirabella's style, the following three wines enrich this style with sumptuous complexity. The second part of the evening in fact starts with the famous Franciacorta Extra Brut Demetra 2009 - made with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc grapes - expresses a sensorial completeness of rare elegance, for a result of magnificent agreeableness and an impeccable balance. It is then the turn of Franciacorta Extra Brut Élite, a wine exclusively produced with Chardonnay and no added sulfites, having a strong personality certainly expressing a new and unparalleled character of Franciacorta, a style giving the senses an unusual and new dimension to bubbles. The event dedicated to Mirabella ended with Franciacorta Dosaggio Zero Riserva D0M 2006 - produced with the three classic grapes of the territory - an extraordinary reserve which, despite the eleven years of age, expresses a lively crispness well integrated to a magic complexity given by time, with an endless finish and an impeccable balance.
