Majolini. Franciacorta Millesimato 'Electo'
Franciacorta DOCG Grapes
Chardonnay 80% Pinot Noir 20%
A serious vintage wine with toast, butter grapefruit and tarragon flavours. Somehow the exuberance is restrained and tempered with a mineral element. A rare and fine wine. 13%
Each plot of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir is fermented in a way that best suits the particular parcel of grapes. Temperature controlled steel tanks are used to ensure that the fermentation temperatures do not exceed eighteen degrees. A small part of the Chardonnay is fermented in barrique and a small part is also aged in small French oak barrels. In the spring the wine is assembled and bottled, it spends at least 60 months on the lees prior to disgorgement.
