Sparkling Wine Sparkling Wine Score:

Franciacorta (Lombardy) Franciacorta Extra Brut Molenèr shows a brilliant straw yellow color and nuances of straw yellow, very transparent, good effervescence, fine and persistent perlage. The nose reveals intense, clean, pleasing and refined aromas which start with hints of banana, apple and raspberry followed by aromas of yeast, bread crust, hawthorn, hazelnut, praline, pear and butter. The mouth has good correspondence to the nose, an effervescent and crisp attack and however balanced by alcohol, good body, intense flavors, pleasing roundness. The finish is persistent with flavors of banana, apple and hazelnut. Part of the base wine ferments and ages in barrique. Franciacorta Extra Brut Molenèr referments in bottle for at least 60 months.

Avevo assaggiato i Franciacorta di Gatta qualche anno fa, dopodiché non ne avevo sentito più parlare e non li ho visti in giro.
Qualche mese fa ho letto la buona recensione in DiWineTaste di questi Franciacorta (ho visto che avete fatto anche un evento con questa cantina, purtroppo la distanza non mi ha permesso di essere presente) e mi sono ricordato di quegli assaggi che, comunque, mi avevano lasciato un buon ricordo.
Ho trovato il Molener qui a Milano e ne ho acquistato una bottiglia. Il prezzo è un po' altino, ma è pur vero che c'è di molto peggio!
Comunque l'assaggio mi ha lasciato favorevolmente soddisfatto. Bella freschezza e bel racconto di profumi dal calice, fatto di banana e piacevoli profumi "complessi" di pralina, burro, brioche e i soliti lieviti tipici del metodo classico.
Come dicevo, bella freschezza in bocca con altrettanto bella danza di bollicine che allietano il palato. Il finale è molto buono fatto di sapori di banana e nocciola.
