The Franciacorta is the sparkling wine center of Italy, the "Italian Champagne". Here, the same grape varieties, such as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir play the main role, yet Franciacorta is generally more fruity and softer than its French role model. Marcello Compagnoni Monzio has existed since 1987 and has quickly earned an excellent reputation as a manufacturer of high-quality sparkling wines.
The Franciacorta Millesimato (vintage) is kept on the lees for at least 60 months before being degorged and put on sale. 5-10% of the base wines are even aged in oak barrels to give the Millesimato a special touch and structure. The result is a classy sparkling wine with fine perlage, the scent is characterized by fruit notes such as peach and apple, plus some yeast and a toasted bread note. In the taste it is juicy, lively and equipped with good extract, a noble sparkling wine, which also shines with an excellent price-quality ratio.
