Franciacorta DOCG Naturae Vintage 2016

Basic Information

Rigorous, earnest and with dense flavor, rich structure and healthy acidity. Part of the grapes comes from a higher elevation vineyard,Pian delle Viti, which was called Valle Sospesa or “Suspended Valley” in the Middle Ages. Its limestone-rich soil gives the wine a delicious mineral note. Its sparkle is Franciacorta in its purest expression.
