La Valle `Primum` Franciacorta Brut DOCG
La Valle 'Primum', the first born, is the foundation of the La Valle spirit. It is the heart of the La Valle line and its unique style remains constant and identifiable over time. 'Primum' is the classic Franciacorta wine, perfect for every occasion. Biscuit and custard notes on the nose with a floral hint. Fresh on the palate with loads of grapefruit and lemon flavours and a nice richness. A long finish which is robustly fruity and complemented by a wonderful savoury character.
Bottled for the first time in 1993, the 'Primum' is made from an attentive selection of Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco, and Pinot Nero grapes from the winery’s historic vineyards which are vinified separately and then magically reunited in elegant and sublime harmony.The wine undergoes secondary fermentation in the bottle via the traditional method making Franciacorta Italy’s answer to Champagne.
Franciacorta is ideal as an aperitif and is a great companion to an array of seafood dishes. .
