Transition . More than a color, pink is a suspended state of mind, like a delicate transition between white and red chasing each other, without ever being either one or the other. Franciacorta Rosé offers a magic poised between two shades. The rosé color is obtained after a short maceration of the red Pinot Noir grapes. Only a few hours to get that particular shade that evokes spring sunsets: you have to seize the moment, one moment the color is too light, the next it's too dark. And then the delicate encounter with Chardonnay and a slow, patient maturation. Cuvée Prestige Rosé, the ideal Franciacorta for the most important occasions. Especially the most romantic ones.

NAME Franciacorta Rosé. GRAPE VARIETIES Pinot Nero 80%, Chardonnay 20% .. VINEYARDS OF ORIGIN 3 Chardonnay vineyards, with an average age of 29 years, located in the municipalities of Erbusco, Cazzago San Martino, Iseo and Passirano. 9 Pinot Nero vineyards planted an average of 25 years ago located in the municipalities of Erbusco, Adro and Passirano. HARVEST PERIOD Second ten days of August. AVERAGE YIELD PER HECTARE 8,300 kilograms of grapes, equivalent to 4,900 liters of wine (yield in wine: 59%). VINIFICATION The Cuvée Prestige Rosé comes from the separate vinification of Pinot Nero and Chardonnay grapes. The grapes, harvested by hand in small boxes, are classified and cooled. Each bunch is selected by expert eyes and hands, to then benefit from the exclusive "terme degli acini". A particular system of washing and hydromassage of the bunches, through three soaking tanks and a drying tunnel. The Pinot Noir grapes, once transported over the vat, are separated from the stalks and the berries fall inside them, from above, by gravity. The "pink" maceration is carried out for 24-36 hours: only a few hours to "seize the moment", that is to obtain that particular and delicate shade of pink that distinguishes Franciacorta Rosé in the bottle. Subsequently, the must separated from the skins ferments in small barrels and steel vats at a controlled temperature. Chardonnay grapes are vinified in the traditional way, with pressing of the whole bunches. The best fractions of must ferment in vats, separately. After 7 months of refinement, the “magic ritual” of creating the cuvée begins, blending the base wines of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The cuvée thus obtained is bottled and aged on the lees in underground cellars, at a constant temperature of 12 ° C, for an average period of 30 months. The dégorgement takes place in the absence of oxygen, using a unique system in the world, designed and patented by Ca 'del Bosco. This avoids oxidative shocks and further additions of sulphites, making our Franciacortas purer, more pleasant and longer-lived. Finally, each packaged bottle is uniquely marked, to guarantee its traceability. DRAFT April of the year following the harvest. AGING ON YEASTS Average duration 30 months.
