Quintessence 2009

FRANCIACORTA EXTRA BRUT RISERVA

In 2005 started the first production of our Quintessence, it needed to be a Franciacorta with unique organoleptic characteristics: able to astonish, to involve, and to excite those who tasted it. A Franciacorta “made for thinking”; alive, with iridescent aromas that evolve in the glass to create a new emotion with every sip. In 2019, after 100 months of resting on the lees, a special reserve, our Quintessence Extra Brut 2009, will celebrate our 40th anniversary. Our Quintessence is able once again to interpret well, and with passion, our area: Franciacorta.

Type of soil: Partly of morainic origin, loose, drained and with an abundant skeletal texture.
Type of grapes: 80% chardonnay 20% pinot noir.
Yield per hectare: 95 quintals per hectare, with a yield maximum allowed in must of 55%.
Vintage: 2009 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 the end of august and early September, when the grapes have reached the correct sugar ripeness, but still have considerable acidity and freshness.
Maturation: 100 months resting on yeasts.
