Tasting Notes

Surrounded by the gentle breezes of the prealpine valleys, the estate vineyards of Elisabetta Abrami thrive in optimum conditions on the sun-drenched hills of Lake Iseo. These vineyards - stretching for 15 hectares between Provaglio d’Isleo, Passirano, and Paderno Franciacorta - each has its own soil type, elevation, and exposure. Vine density is low, harvesting is by hand at peak ripeness, and always with a high respect for the environment. The vineyards are certified organic, as are all aspects of production.

“Franciacorta” both defines the area and the method of production, and has for centuries - since the Serenissima Republic of the 16th century - defined the wine. A sparkling wine, made in the traditional method, using the classic grapes of champagne - chardonnay and pinot noir.

Franciacorta DOCG Brut is a cuvée of 80% Chardonnay grapes and 20% Pinot Noir grapes, hand-picked in August from low yielding - 100 qli/Ha - estate vineyards. Each variety is fermented separately in stainless steel tanks, and the cuvée is made in the spring, following harvest, with the addition of sugar and yeast for the second fermentation. It remains in the bottle for a minimum of 24 months (on the lees), then three more months post-disgorgment before release. Remuage is with gyropallet. Dosage 7 gr/litre. Alc./vol. 12.5%. 25,000 bottles produced.

Our Tasting Note: Straw-yellow/gold colour, with fine and persistent bubbles. Elegant and rich, with slightly yeasty aromas and flavours of pear, warm apple, and vanilla. Balanced acidity, fine and elegant, with a long persistent finish.

Food pairings: A great aperitif wine, and pairs well with grilled fish, shell-fish, poultry and white meat courses.
