SPARKLING WINE FRANCIACORTA PAS DOSÉ RISERVA 'BAGNADORE' BARONE PIZZINI 2014 DESCRIPTION

The Franciacorta Pas Dosé Riserva "Bagnadore" is a sparkling wine large and complex, full of juice and vibration savory and minerals. Born from the wonderful liveliness of a historic winery and prestigious area of Franciacorta, the Barone Pizzini, managed according to organic farming and sustainable practices.

The Franciacorta Pas Dosé Riserva "Bagnadore" borns from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grown in a single vineyard of over twenty years (Roccolo Provaglio d'Iseo), surrounded and protected by a wood cool and windy. The name of Reserve meets essential quality criteria, so it is produced in limited quantities and only in the best vintages. The aromatic richness and complexity of Franciacorta Pas Dosé Riserva "Bagnadore" is due to the rest of 60 months on the lees before disgorging; an extraordinarily long time to create a Pas Dosé elegant and durable.

The Pas Dosé "Bagnadore" looks into the cup with an attractive golden color and very fine bubbles and very dense. The nose gives off a wonderful framework of aromas: flowers, cedar and lemon. The taste is savory and mineral, then large and complex, with citrus notes and long finish. A Pas Dosé pure and shining, of uncommon complexity, which delights all lovers of bubbles.
