Bellavista Franciacorta Rosé 2017

Bellavista Franciacorta Rosé has a gracefulness and assertiveness, gentleness and power. Dusty pink colour pierced by shining white foam and a thick, persistent pérlage. The bouquet is a dance with white peaches, wild strawberries, wildflowers and brioche. Fleshy and dry mouthfeel that is fresh but not too sharp. Harmonious and seductive flavours of black currant and sweet almonds. 

56% Chardonnay and 44% Pinot Nero. The fruit comes from Bellavista's vineyards in Lombardy, from vines with an average age of 25 years. The base wine is assembled from 30 vintage selections, 43% of which matures in small white oak casks and the rest in stainless steel. Cellaring lasts 4 years or more after the harvest.

Ageing potential: 10–15 years.
