Wine Spectator:

" A rich, smoky note of roasted hazelnut underscores this sleek, creamy Franciacorta, with vibrant acidity enlivening the palate of poached pear, candied lemon zest, raspberry, toast and ground ginger flavors. Drink now through 2020. 11,667 cases made. "

Product Description:

Franciacorta is Italy’s best-kept secret from the Lombardy region. Like Cava and Champagne, Franciacorta achieves its elegant effervescence thanks to secondary fermentation on the bottle – the so-called ‘classic method‘ or ‘metodo champenoise‘ (as opposed to Prosecco for example which is made using the Charmat method with secondary fermentation occurring in large pressurized tanks). Cavalleri has always been one of the historic names of Franciacorta and their NV Brut Blanc de Blanc is the standard-bearer of their Franciacorta production. This was the first Franciacorta produced by the family in 1979 with just 6,000 bottles made. Today approx.120,000 bts are produced annualy. Cavalleri’s non-vintage Franciacorta Brut is made with 100% Chardonnay (hence the designation Blanc de Blancs) sourced from estate-owned, organically-farmed vineyards and aged for at least 2 years on its lees. Dosage of 3gr/lt of sugar and 15mg/lt sulfites. A wine of great elegance and finesse, with considerable cellaring potential.
