Franciacorta Artio Rosé vintage
The journey in the woods.
Very classic color, ranging from coral to light salmon, the bubble is rather bubbly, fast, abundant, continuous.
At first nose you can clearly perceive the maceration, the red grapes clearly express the plum, the cherry, the wild black fruits such as blueberry and mulberry; the typical vegetable and spicy characters come out, the barks and musky tones, it closes with fresher and citrus characters. The taste is balanced, the dry nuance is delicate, acidity and flavor are well balanced by an enveloping alcohol content, in the finish the red fruit and small berries return evident, with a good spiciness and a hint of licorice.
Vine varieties used: 50% Pinot Noir, 50% Chardonnay.
Selection of the grapes: in the vineyard with manual harvesting in boxes of a maximum of 18 kg.
Vinification in white in pneumatic press with soft pressing of the whole grapes and separation of the 1st and 2nd fraction. The Pinot Noir must undergoes a light maceration of about 6 hours, to then be blended with the Chardonnay. After static and physical separation from the impurities of the must at low temperatures, the inoculation of selected yeasts for fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. This is followed by racking and lowering of the temperature to around 10°C to avoid malolactic fermentation. Once the "draught syrup" has been added, it is bottled, capped with a crown cap and laid down in a pile for the second fermentation.
Bottle refinement: minimum 36 months.
Format: 75 cl bottle.
