Franciacorta Audens Dosaggio Zero Le Marchesine 75 cl
Franciacorta Audens Dosage Zero
Rather pale straw color, the bubbles forcefully make room, trying to make their way to enhance the aromas. The sense of smell immediately highlights spiciness, minerality, at times it is smoky, reminiscent of citrus peel aromas, of fruit with a sweet pulp but with a leathery skin, plum, gooseberry, then passes to more vegetal notes, the leaf of vine, elderflower and essential oils of bergamot, dill and wild fennel. In the mouth it has excellent tension, very direct, clean, thirst-quenching, pleasantly dry; the saline acid component emerges significantly, giving juiciness, but above all lengthening the memories, which return on the chalk powders, on the lymphatic and vegetable notes.
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.
