Producer: Monzio Compagnoni
Region: DOP Franciacorta, Lombardia
Grapes: 100% Chardonnay
Golden Delicious Apple, Vanilla, Biscuit
This wine hits you with gentle acidity and becomes delectably smooth as waves of vanilla biscuit, anise, and freshly sliced apple provide depth within the bouquet. Very little sugar was added before its second fermentation which allowed the bubbles to remain soft and creamy while still providing enough structure throughout. This 100% Chardonnay would satisfy any Champagne lover and intrigue anyone who doesn't regularly reach for sparkling wine.
Pairs beautifully with taleggio, seared scallops and vegetable terrine! Sustainable winemakers!
