Blanc de Blancs Franciacorta 0.75 NV
Created by the interaction between the experience of the Antinori family
and the demonstrated high viticultural quality of a territory, Franciacorta,
the “Classics”- Marchese Antinori Cuvée Royale, Rosé, and Blanc de blancs -
are produced from a selection of Chardonnay, Pinot Nero, and Pinot Bianco grapes.
The Montenisa estate is located around the hamlet of Calino, near Lake Iseo in the heart of the Franciacorta appellation. The vineyards surrounding the proprietary villa of the Maggi family have been the heart of the production of Marchese Antinori Franciacorta since 1999.
The must was fermented in stainless steel tanks. The second fermentation took place in bottle and the wine remained on its lees for 24 months before dégorgement.
