Vinitaly is just around the corner and our news is called Nature 2014.
This Franciacorta Vintage comes from one of the most demanding harvests of the new millenium. The secluded hillslope site and the soft breeze from Lago d'Iseo luckily mitigated the damages of that year. Nature enhances Ronco Calino's know how in the cellar, which is based on minivinifications, no malolactic fermentation, low dosage of sugare and very long ageing period on the lees. The four years of maturation on the yeast lees balance the freshness of the malic acid and the 30% Pinot Noir added to Chardonnay gives a pleasant acidity making the sip very persistent.
A lively and contemportary Franciacorta which recalls a young dandy in double-breasted tailored suit.
