A Franciacorta of great personality, consisting in a selection of pinot noir grapes from a specific morainic soil that gives the grape its full-bodied flavour, which carries over well to the wine. It has a very precise flavour, complex bouquet, with hints of grapefruit, blackcurrant, and walnut hull, and unusual traces of laurel and green tobacco. Modulated and sharp-flavoured, structured and full-bodied, fast-paced, it has a long and pleasantly persistent finish.
