Franciacorta (Lombardy) This Franciacorta Extra Brut shows a brilliant golden yellow color and nuances of straw yellow, very transparent, fine and persistent perlage. The nose reveals intense, clean, pleasing, refined and elegant aromas which start with hints of banana, peach and hazelnut followed by aromas of bread crust, yeast, acacia, hawthorn, raspberry, apple, tangerine, pear, praline, pink grapefruit and plum. The mouth has excellent correspondence to the nose, an effervescent and crisp attack, however balanced by alcohol, good body, intense flavors, pleasing smoothness. The finish is very persistent with long flavors of banana, peach, hazelnut and tangerine. A well made wine. This Franciacorta Extra Brut ages on its lees for 6 years.
