1701 Franciacorta Brut Rosé NV (750ml/12)
About 1701 Franciacorta
On the top of Santa Giulia hill, beside the Cluniac church of the same name, lies the glorious eighteenth century villa Palazzo Cazzago – home to the 1701 winery. The villa dates back to several families of Italian nobility, with 15 hectares of hillside in Cazzago San Martino, Franciacorta.
The “1701” name was chosen to recall the first vinification of the estate’s “Brolo”, a sun-drenched 4 hectare vineyard framed by 11th century walls.
1701 is a certified ...New York, New Jersey
After the first fermentation on native yeasts, the wine is fermented like all 1701 wines in the bottle by adding frozen must to restart the fermentation. Wine is disgorged after a minimum of 30 months. Color is a bright yet delicate pink. In the glass the wine has very fine bubbles. The nose shows orange flowers, raspberry, pomegranate and cherries. The mouth feel is dry, slightly tannic with zesty notes and dry red berries; very elegant.
