Berlucchi - Franciacorta '61' Rosé 750ml
NV Franciacorta DOCG 750ml
The name Franciacorta is used as a designation, like the name "Champagne" for the sparkling wines produced in the Franciacorta in the province of Brescia in Lombardy. Similar to Champagne, it is made using the traditional method of secondary fermentation within the bottle, and with the same grape varieties. That is where the similarities end.
Franciacorta has an Alpine climate which is low elevation but influenced by nearby mountains. The grapes produce a rich and balanced base wine, which then undergoes secondary fermentation within the bottle for a minimum of 24 months for the Rosè (the minimum requirement for Champagne in 15 months).
The wine displays elegant notes of white peach and rose melded with subtle nuances of yeast and crusty bread.
