1701 Franciacorta Brut Nature NV

Lombardy, Italy1701 Franciacorta is a 10 hectare biodynamic certified estate, the first and only certified biodynamic producer in the Franciacorta region. This Brut Nature (in a fresh new label since I last saw it) blends the structural elegance of 85% Chardonnay, and the character of 15% Pinot Nero, aged for a minimum of 30 months on the lees. This bottle was disgorged in September 2022. Red and yellow apple, biscuit, light toast runs over a bed of river stones, held taut and snappy with a lemon pith brace. Bone dry and zippy, this is certainly not your typical blousy / creamy Franciacorta.Tasted: 08 September 2023Tasted by: Prices:
