Antica Fratta Franciacorta Essence Brut 2008
Gilbert & Gaillard 90 - Appealing mousse. Harmonious and refined nose showing great complexity and driven by notes of sweet almond, hawthorn, chalk and mineral scents. The palate is very creamy, fresh, savoury and mineral and shows balance. Long clean finish suffused with lemon.
You write Essence Brut and you read essence of Chardonnay. Only the best parcels, enriched with small additions of Pinot Noir vinified in white. Three years on yeasts in search of the right degree of complexity that exalts the elegance and pleasantness of the fruity and floral aromas characterising the “Antica Fratta style”, without ever penalizing its pleasantness to drink. Very elegant as an aperitif, an eclectic wine to accompany meals and a highly refined break in a frenzied lifestyle.
