La Valle `Naturalis` Franciacorta Extra Brut DOCG 2009
La Valle 'Naturalis', the pure and most “natural” since it is enriched with only a minimal dose of sugar in the final stage of its creation. This Extra Brut (extra dry) is a harmonious blend of meticulously selected Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco and Pinot Nero grapes. A nose full of yeasty, biscuit-y and apple notes with ripe apple fruit on the palate with a nice mineral and citrus character through to the finish. Pure and fresh, this is a wine of real elegance.
The historic vineyards include La Valle, Roccolo, Bredina, and Tesa. They enjoy a unique and extraordinary micro-climate and they produce high-quality grapes, rich in scent and taste, from noble vines of Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco and Pinot Nero.
This Franciacorta undergoes secondary fermentation in the bottle via the traditional method making it Italy’s answer to Champagne.
A refined aperitif and a splendid companion for shellfish, white meat and even lighter game dishes.
