Franciacorta Sullerba Sur-lie
Brut nature sparkling white
Blend: 100% Chardonnay
From: Italy, Franciacorta DOCG
By: Marco Benedini @ 1701 Franciacorta
Only Chardonnay grapes fermented with wild yeast in stainless steel sills and clay amphora jars. Secondary fermentation then takes place within the bottle itself for at least 12 months. The wine is crisp with light refreshing bubbles. Notes of bread crust and peach on the nose, with a zesty and lemony palate at the first sip, but with a long and complex finish of minerality and chalk.
1701 is the first certified organic and biodynamic winery in the Franciacorta region in Lombardy.
Started from the passion shared by a group of friends, of their love for the land (Franciacorta region in northern Italy) and farming traditions working in harmony with nature. They strongly believe in biodynamic agriculture, not only avoiding any use of chemical products, but working in total respect of all natural processes. Production is small, around only 50.000 bottles a year.
