FRANCIACORTA DOCG
AU CONTRAIRE PAS DOSÉ 2011
Blanc de Noir

ct three of Au Contraire. Thinking of this wine, we’ve always wanted to tell a story in reverse, in which the usual hero, chardonnay, was replaced by pinot noir. Here,
unlike for previous versions, there is no trace of the former: it is our debut among the Blanc de Noir.
Vinification in steel tanks, ten years of refinement on the yeasts.
