Essence Nature 2014

FRANCIACORTA DOSAGGIO ZERO MILLESIMATO

The pinnacle of Natural Essence. Assemblage of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, resulting in a clean and rigorous fragrance without the addition of liqueur d’expedition. Rested on the lees for more than 36 months. The essence “Nature” reveals a Franciacorta Vintage that is pure and sincere. Excellent as an aperitif, ideal with seafood and raw fish.

Type of soil: Partly of morainic origin, loose, drained and with an abundant skeletal texture.
Type of grapes: 70% chardonnay 30% pinot noir.
Yield per hectare: 100 quintals per hectare, with a yield maximum allowed in must of 55%.
Vintage: 2014 vintage and therefore obtained from the skilful assemblage of the best grapes of that year; the use of pinot noir, vinified in white, helps to obtain a good body, without influencing the elegance of the prepon- derant chardonnay.
Harvest: Between the end of august and early september, when the grapes have reached the correct sugar ripeness, but still have considerable acidity and freshness
Maturation: Over 42 months from harvesting, of which at least 36 on yeasts. After disgorgement, the bottles rest in the cellar for another 5-6 months.
