QUICK FACTSFranciacorta, Italy
85% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Nero, 5% Pinot Bianco
DESCRIPTIONThe winery’s masterpiece, most well-known and representing Monte Rossa’s visiting card, Prima Cuvèe is obtained from Chardonnay and Pinot Nero grapes with a small percentage of Pinot Bianco. Refined in the bottle for at least 20 months.
Distinguished by it’s delicate elegance, this wine shows immediate aromas of lemon peel, white flowers and brioche. A wine of pure pleasure, gentle fizz, softly textured but with enough citrus grip to make it interesting to the last drop.
Drinking now and will develop over the next 5 years. Monte Rossa Franciacorta Prima Cuvèe Brut pairs exceptionally with Italian appetizers and main dishes. For a treat, pair with seasoned hard cheeses such as Parmigiano Reggiano...mmm!
