Essence Nature 2015

FRANCIACORTA DOSAGGIO ZERO MILLESIMATO

A blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, resulting in a clean and rigorous fragrance without the addition of liqueur d’expedition.

Type of soil: Calcareous-clayey
Type of grapes: 70% chardonnay 30% pinot noir.
Yield per hectare: 100 quintals per hectare, with a yield maximum allowed in must of 65%.
Vintage: 2015 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 preponderant chardonnay
Harvest: Between mid-August and early September when the grapes have reached the correct sugar ripeness, but still have a 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
