Product Description:

"Monte Rossa, a benchmark in Franciacorta, was founded in 1972 by Paola Rovetta, who served as the first chairman of the Franciorta Consorzio that was successful in gaining DOCG status for the appellation. Paola was joined by her son Emanuele Rabotti in 1982 and ten years later, Monte Rossa celebrated its 20th anniversary with the first release of Cabochon, a magnum opus of Franciacorta that was the result of years of research and experimentation by Emanuele. Cabochon is a vintage Franciacorta, comprised of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir, that is fermented in first or second passage barriques from revered white wine producers such as Jermann, and is aged sur lie for 48 months. Monte Rossa was the first estate in the area dedicated to the exclusive production of Franciacorta and all of their cuvées are crafted in the fashion of great Champagne. They are committed to low yields during harvest, vinifying only the juice from the first pressing in their state of the art, gravity fed cellars, and use a large percentage of reserve wines in the assemblage order to consistently produce wines marked by elegance and finesse." - Distributor's Notes
