Franciacorta is the premium quality sparkling wine from Italy. It is made using the same method and the same grapes as Champagne and the style is very similar. This is a wonderful example, made from 100% Chardonnay grapes and having that lovely buttery, biscuity flavour of the best Champagnes.
100% Chardonnay, 24 months on the lees. Quite intense straw yellow. Neutral or just a little reductive on the nose. No evident autolysis. Generous lemon curd fruit palate and only just detectable CO2. Perhaps just a little bit bitter on the finish. (WS)
