The whole cluster Chardonnay grapes were given a soft and delicate pressing.
The finest part of the must, i.e. the first pressing, was first fermented both in
stainless steel tanks and in small oak barrels. Towards the spring of the following year,
the wine underwent a second fermentation, this time in bottle, and remained on its
lees for a period of 48 months.
Straw yellow in color with light golden highlights, the wine shows a
creamy bubbling with light but continuous bubbles. The aromas are
delicate with floral and white fruit notes. The palate is balanced and
harmonious, that of an elegant wine of class and breed. The ideal
serving temperature for the wine is between 45° and 50° Fahrenheit
(7°-9° centigrade). Matches with food and occasions for drinking:
Particularly suitable as an aperitif with light appetizers or pasta
with fish sauces, baked or roasted fish, or white meat.
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.
