Franciacorta (Lombardy)
Chardonnay
Sparkling Wine Sparkling Wine Score:

Franciacorta (Lombardy) This Franciacorta shows an intense golden yellow color and nuances of straw yellow, very transparent, good effervescence, fine and persistent perlage. The nose denotes intense, clean, pleasing and refined aromas which start with hints of bread crust, praline and banana followed by aromas of yeast, plum, cocoa butter, hawthorn, apple, grapefruit, hazelnut and vanilla. The mouth has good correspondence to the nose, an effervescent and crisp attack, however balanced by alcohol, good body, intense flavors. The finish is persistent with flavors of apple, banana and plum. Part of the Chardonnay used for the cuvée ferments in barrique. This Franciacorta ages in bottle on its lees for at least 36 months.
