La Valle `Regium` Franciacorta Brut DOCG 2009
La Valle 'Regium' is the king of the La Valle range. It is the perfect interpretation that La Valle gives to excellent and extraordinary years. A masterpiece of freshness, elegance, and strength, a brut that is full of character, harmonious, complex, and rich. Masses of tiny bubbles. A fresh pear and delicate floral nose with a steely, mineral hint and just a touch of brioche richness in the background. A fine yeasty richness on the palate with sweet apple ripeness. Long and clean - this is a beautiful Franciacorta.
'Regium' is obtained from an extremely accurate selection of Chardonnay grapes from only the oldest vines of the historic La Valle vineyard, grapes so noble they can stand alone. Produced only in top years, this vintage wine is cellared for a minimum of 60 months and is made of 100% Chardonnay. It is fermented in stainless steel and undergoes secondary fermentation in the bottle via the traditional method making it Italy’s answer to Champagne.
'Regium' is ideal for aperitifs and to accompany important dishes with rich and intense flavours.
