Franciacorta, Brut DOCG Millesimato, Contadi Castaldi

SKU: 12475

The Italian answer to Champagne, a classic method sparkling wine of elegance and finesse and character, widely regarded by those in the know as the equal of Champagne

Made mainly from the Chardonnay (80%) variety, with a small addition of Pinot Noir (10%) and Pinot Blanc (10%), and aged for two years on its lees. Experience acquired at Bellavista, another winery in the group, along with the carefully produced cuvée, the moderate use of oak and ageing on its lees, form the basis of this balanced and creamy sparkling wine, capable of combining the Chardonnay's elegance with the Franciacorta's flavour, freshness and typicity.

A revitalising and crisp sparkling wine, offering a clean and persistent finish with toasty and spicy notes.
