Franciacorta Pas Dosé Cavalleri 2015
This Franciacorta is made with 100% Chardonnay of the 2013 harvest. The fermentation and the aging takes place in steel for 85%, in large oak barrels for 10% and in barrels for the rest 5%. The aging on the lees for a minimum of 42 months represents the quality mark of Cavalleri. The manual remuage is 4 weeks long while the degorgement took place from September 2017 to March 2018.
The slow and gradual ripening of the grapes in the month of August, thanks to a mild and balanced summer season, has enhanced the fresh and balsamic component of the grapes. Even the color, golden and bright, you can perceive the richness and aromatic complexity that distinguish this Franciacorta pas dosé.
The Cavalleri family lives in harmony with the land since 1450. In five centuries, a profound empathy has developed with the vineyard itself: each generation face, day after day, the unpredictability of the climate and natural events. Today, as always, with one big goal: to produce wines that faithfully express the essence of the Erbusco hills. Each wine is a child of the previous one, with its peculiarities that makes it unique.
Cavalleri has always been a promoter of the benefits for a long aging on the lees. The bottles are turned by hand one by one in the cellar leaving an indelible imprint on all wines.
