Franciacorta Rose Brut DOCG Millesimato, Monzio Compagnoni
Franciacorta Rose Brut DOCG Millesimato, Monzio Compagnoni
This high quality sparkling wine has a great bright pink colour, an extremely fine and persistent perlage and long lasting frothy nature. Slightly sweet and intensity aromas with floral notes of rose and jasmine in the foreground, followed by pomegranate, saffron and cherry. Secondary aromas of cloves and currants come to mind. Smooth to taste with a balanced, fresh and savoury finish with mineral notes reminiscent of flint. A superb party wine for special occasions!

Classification: DOCG Millesimato

Producer: Monzio Compagnoni

Wine Style: Sparkling

Grape Varieties : Chardonnay | Pinot Nero

Vinification: The Pinot Nero (80%) and Chardonnay (20%) grapes are harvested by hand and placed in cases. On arrival at the winery the entire grape clusters are soft pressed and the primary fermentation of the grape must takes place. To create the ‘Cuvée’, the different wines from selected vineyard parcels are then chosen and blended. To begin the secondary fermentation, Franciacorta is made just like Champagne. The wine is bottled and the ‘Liqueur de Tirage’ (a blend of fine sugar and ‘lees’) is added. The bottle is sealed with a crown cap and then laid down for 24 months for Franciacorta Rosé Brut Millesimato. During this period the bottles undergo ‘Remuage’ (rotating 360° and lifting 45°) once a day. After this period, the tops of the bottles are frozen and the plug is removed. This process is called ‘dégorgement’. Before the mushroom cork and wire cage seal the bottle (all under pressure) the ‘Dosage’ is added and in the case of the Monzio Compagnoni Franciacorta Extra Brut this is 5 grams per litre. The official DOCG label is then added at this point along with the final labelling and packaging.
