Franciacorta Brut NITENS DOCG Le Marchesine
The production of this sensational Franciacorta Brut that boasts DOCG certification involves the use of blended Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir grapes. The grapes come from Le Marchesine di Biatta Giovanni & C. - Passirano, Brescia. The harvest takes place with the entry into the vineyard in September and involves the manual collection in boxes of maximum 18 kg. The vinification takes place in white pneumatic press with soft pressing of the whole grapes and separation of the 1st and 2nd fraction. After static and physical separation from the impurities of the must at low temperatures, the yeast is inoculated for fermentation in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature. This is followed by decanting and lowering of the temperature to about 10ºC to avoid malolactic fermentation. Once the "tirage syrup" has been added, it is bottled, capped with the crown cap and laid down in a pile for foaming.
