Franciacorta Brut 'Essence' Antica Fratta 2018

Antica Fratta

Franciacorta "Essence" is a Millesimato Brut with a refined and complex timbre, aged for at least 36 months on the lees. With a refined color that fades towards golden, illuminated by a subtle and long-lasting perlage, it develops an elegant and wide aromatic set, with notes reminiscent of the bakery, almond, ripe yellow fruit and spring tones of wild flowers. The olfactory sensations also emerge on tasting, giving a dynamic, elegant and soft drink, with lashing freshness and delicate minerality

Brut 'Essence' is a Franciacorta produced by a historic name in the area. Antica Fratta has origins dating back to the 19th century, when the area of Monticelli Brusati was already known for viticulture. It is an area with a special character, located on the outer edge of the glacial moraine of Lake Iseo. In this area, to the north-east of the appellation, the vines are cultivated on calcareous-clayey soils that are very suitable for the noble Burgundy varieties. After harvesting, the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes are brought to the cellar and subjected to a very soft pressing. The free-run juice is fermented at a low temperature. After maturing for several months, the base wines are blended to create the definitive cuvée. Secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle according to the Metodo Classico, with at least 36 months resting on the lees.

"Essence" Franciacorta Brut from the La Fratta winery expresses the purity of the vintage, the authentic face of the vintage and the characteristics of the harvest. It is a bottle that changes its taste every year and is loved by enthusiasts precisely because of its ability to capture the year in a goblet and to reproduce its personality even after a long time. Its light yellow colour with brilliant golden hues tells us of a rich and evolved wine with a very fine and delicate perlage. The olfactory picture is broad and seductive, with beautiful notes of ripe fruit, pain brioche, dried fruit, toasted almonds and floral nuances, anticipating a complex and persistent sip. The finish is harmonious and pleasantly fresh. The Millesimato you want to drink every year!
