BRUT ROSÉ 2014
Summer 2014, cold and rainy, made the interpretation of pinot nero in Franciacorta very difficult. The rosé base wines were elegant and vertical, but lacked in roundness. In the last ten years we used almost only pinot nero to make our Franciacorta rosé, but in 2014 we’ve decided to add 40% of chardonnay to the blend to reach the right taste.
The result is an elegant and well balanced rosè, delicate in color but with a strong structure and complex aromas.
When we make wines, we do not follow any ideology or market trend. We are guided only by nature and our taste.
