Love Your Bubbles - Franciacorta Brut
A little bit of luxury does us all good. It was a pleasure to stay at the Hotel Cenobio dei Dogi in Camogli where I sampled some of the finest foods created by top chefs.
Whilst enjoying the regular and imperative Aperitivo before la cena (dinner), the barista (barman) recommended a great tipple in the form of a BRUT, FRANCIACORTA from the Enrico Gatti vineyards. The Franciacorta district, near Brescia in Northern Italy is one of Italy's finest wine-growing areas.
- The Franciacorta Brut is produced from soft-pressed, hillside Chardonnay grapes vinified in stainless steel vats.
- Sojourn on the lees is at least 24 months.
- The winery’s calling card and emblematic wine.
- It is fresh, well balanced and persistent, showing notes of dried fruit and citrus.
