The Franciacorta Brut Cuvée Royale of the Montenisa estate of the Marchesi Antinori was born in the noble vines located in the heart of Franciacorta, near Lake Iseo.
It is mainly produced with Chardonnay grapes and with Pinot Nero and Pinot Bianco grapes, harvested entirely by hand. The “flower” must undergoes the first alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Subsequently the wine ferments for a further 36 months in the bottle in contact with the lees.
This Franciacorta Brut Cuvée Royale is characterized by a pale yellow colour, with a creamy foam with a fine and persistent perlage. The nose opens with a fruity bouquet, with hints of white-fleshed peach and light notes of bread crust and yeast. On the palate it offers balance and liveliness.
Its refined fragrances make it ideal for aperitifs or light appetizers based on fresh fish, delicate white meats and seasonal vegetables.
