After a minimum of 18 months on the lees, the bottle is riddled to concentrate the sediment against the temporary cap, then disgorged and packaged. Our Franciacorta Brut displays a delicate, subtle bouquet that is still crisp and fruity, and quite long lasting; in the mouth it is attractively dry, with a velvety texture and exceptionally fine balance. The bead boasts dense, pin-point bubbles, with a foamy mousse seems almost endless.
The color of rubies, its interesting bouquet of violets paired with a round, harmonious taste of bitter almonds, combine to make this wine an unusually sophisticated representative of its kind.
The Lagrein has a fine and pleasant bouquet, reminiscent of violets. Its flavour is full, velvety and slightly bitter and it also keeps well. This is a wine that goes well with grilled and roast meats, game and spicy cheeses.
Colour: ruby red with violet tones Aroma: open and fruity with heart cherries and Mon Chéri pralines, a hint of cinnamon and marzipan Taste: smooth and fruity, well-structured with soft tannins, sophisticated yet invitingly drinkable with the typical lightness of a Vernatsch wine, fruity and long in the finish
