1701 Franciacorta Sullerba NV

Brescia, Lombardy, Italy1701 Franciacorta is a 10 hectare biodynamic certified estate, the first and only certified biodynamic producer in the Franciacorta region. This frizzante Chardonnay pét-nat was native fermented in stainless, and tipped into bottle to finish fermentation along with a kick start from frozen Chardonnay must. It was not disgorged, hence the slight cloudiness, and has 0 dosage. Salinity runs through the gentle bubbles, lifting Anjou pear, lightly toasted wheat, yellow apple, and fine stones. Lovely balance here.Tasted: 14 November 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
