Franciacorta Extra Brut docg

Vineyards of origin

Franciacorta Extra Brut is part of the company's reserves and for its production we choose grapes from the oldest vineyards, assembling bunches from 12 vineyards located in 6 municipalities of Franciacorta.

Winemaking

The whole grapes are pressed with a pneumatic press, gently extracting the juice. During vinification, the must is separated into two fractions: free-run must, which has the best quality characteristics and is used for the production of Franciacorta, and second-pressing must, which is not destined for bottling. Alcoholic fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks at an constant temperature of 16-18 °C. The base wine rests in vats until the spring following the harvest.
