Ferghettina Franciacorta Milledi 2016

12.5% abv

Vol- 75cl

Fresh and elegant with white flower and citrus notes. The palate is complex with brioche and more citrus characters giving a lovely weight and texture. The mousse is fine and persistent.

100% Chardonnay from a single vintage from 12 vineyard sites across Franciacorta. Only the free run juice is used. Primary ferment in stainless steel followed by aging on lees until Spring. The wine ages in bottle for 3 years on its lees- the titular 1000 days / mille di – and after disgorgement the dosage is a low 4g/l. The flat sides of the patented square bottle, developed by Matteo, give an internal surface area of yeasts in the aging wine that is almost two and a half times that of the typical surface of a round bottle.This helps develop the compexity and textures that exempliy the world’s best traditonal method sparkling wines.

“The aromatically captivating 2015 Franciacorta Milledì Brut shows dusty florals with hints of incense, savory spices and crushed dried leaves. It’s round and delicate in the mouth, balancing bright acids with notes of ripe apple, and closing with salty mineral tones and an inner air of yeasty bread. This is full of character, refined and classically dry. You can consider me a fan. (Lot BM-1)”

Good stock

The Franciacorta wine region is midway between Milan to the west and Lake Garda to the east. The area has been producing high quality, bottle-fermented sparkling wines since the 1950s with local viticulture dating back millennia. Roberto Gatti founded the estate in 1990 after a long career at one of the region’s early pioneer producers, Bellavista, and is now aided by Laura and Matteo, his children. The wines of Franciacorta are produced using the same techniques as Champagne. However, given the region’s more Southerly location the wines produced come from riper grapes leading to lower additions of sugars and a fresher, cleaner style.
