Franciacorta (Lombardy) The wine shows an intense golden yellow color and nuances of golden yellow, very transparent, fine and persistent perlage. The nose reveals intense, clean, pleasing and refined aromas which start with hints of banana, grapefruit and hazelnut followed by aromas of hawthorn, bread crust, butter, croissant, apple, yeast, pear, plum, praline and vanilla. The mouth has good correspondence to the nose, an effervescent and crisp attack, however balanced by alcohol, good body, intense flavors, agreeable. The finish is persistent with flavors of banana, plum and hazelnut. The base wine ferments and age in barrique for 4 months. Franciacorta Brut Cuvée 4 ages for 25 months in the bottle on its lees.

They told me the Chardonnay in this wine was fermented in barrique and you can tell by smelling it, although wood aromas are not so strong and they are well balanced.
Intense straw yellow color with golden reflexes, give this sparkling wine from Italy a very attractive look, with very fine and long lasting bubbles.
Good aromas of banana and ripe fruit, yeast, biscuit and vanilla.
Full body with a very good flavor of banana and hazelnut, excellent harmony and very long finish. Definitely a great sparkler! Highly recommended.
