Franciacorta Nitens Brut Le Marchesine 75 cl
Franciacorta Nitens Brut
Satisfying appearance, straw-yellow color of excellent intensity, delicate greenish hints, compact, continuous, excellently present effervescence.
The sweet notes, marzipan, very open flowers, broom, honeysuckle are exalted at first nose; the outfit is elegant, complex, refined; secondly, the nougat, chopped hazelnuts and spices emerge, the candied ginger that blends with the citron. The taste is sapid, soft, both the impact and the closure are enveloping and creamy; it is decidedly transversal because it mixes great drinkability with the intensity of perceptions, closing tasty, rather full with flavors of acacia and macadamia nuts.
Vine varieties used: 60% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Blanc, 15% Pinot Noir.
Selection of the grapes: in the vineyard with manual harvesting in boxes of a maximum of 18 kg.
Vinification: in white in a pneumatic press with soft pressing of the whole grapes and separation of the 1st and 2nd fractions. 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 24 months.
Format: 75 cl bottle.
