1701 Franciacorta Brut

Regular price £27.95

1701 FRANCIACORTA, MARCO BENDINI & ADRIANO ZAGO. Franciacorta- Biodynamic On the top of Santa Giulia hill, beside the 251 orello church of the same name, the glorious eighteenth century villa Palazzo Cazzago is home to the 1701 winery. The villa is part of ancient land belonging to the noble families of Bettoni and Cazzago. The land includes approximately 15 hectares of hillside in Cazzago San Martino, Franciacorta. The name 1701 was chosen to recall the first vinification of their “brolo”, a 4-hectare vineyard framed by XI century walls. 1701 Franciacorta is a 10 ha organic certified winery now in conversion to Demeter. As members of Renaissance des Appellations they follow biodynamic farming methods – an approach which excludes any chemical intervention. It is ultimately a philosophy of life, about working closely with the vine, understanding and respecting its life cycle until the point when bottled it can fully express its vitality and character and above all the authenticity of its terroir. 

Grapes are hand harvested and whole bunches are put into stainless vats. Secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle. The Franciacorta Brut is a blend of Chardonnay 85% and Pinot Nero 15%. 

Fairly full for the style balanced by a zingy acidity. Mineral hints softened by fresh fruits, notably red apple and light brioche notes. Most definitely dry.
