PRIMUS
FRANCIACORTA BRUT CUVÉE

Feelings:

Good foam and discrete perlage, pale straw yellow with light green reflections, good structure and balance; presents good sapidity, minerality and pleasant persistence.

Specifications:

Tot. Alc. Vol.% 12,50, Ac.Tot 7,00, pH 3,02, Sugar 4,50 gr/lt (average values of the various lots). Chardonnay 95% with various clonal selections and 5% Pinot Noir. Stay on the natural yeasts in bottle at least 30 months.

Bottle:

Special glass of 0,75 liters; also available in sizes of 1,50 liters and 3,00 liters.

Bright light golden colour with a vivid mousse. Rather complex and layered nose, vinous with (perhaps oak) roasted hazelnut, yellow fruit, apricot, fresh butter and brioche, rather white burgundy like on the nose. The palate is well-built with a bright freshness and layers of ripe stone fruit underlined by pastry notes and fresh butter with a long and lingering finish. Nice.
