Riva di Franciacorta

A great alternative to Champagne and different in style to Prosecco, Franciacorta is a wine that is unfairly overlooked. Great fruit and weight, soft and dry on the palate with flavours of apple, peach and brioche.

90% Chardonnay & 10% Pinot Noir
Since 1990 the Riva brothers, Alfredo and Alberto, have selected and purchased the best land which now occupy about 34 hectares in the municipality of Passirano and Provaglio d'Iseo, in the heart of Franciacorta.  The intent was to develop wines with unique features, through the love of the land and the perfect balance between advanced technology and specialized technical skills.  This Brut style Franciacorta is aged for 20 months on its lees before release, adding weight and complexity to the wine.

The nose is bright and fresh, citrus and green apple notes lead to floral hints.  A little brioche and yeast come through at the back, giving away the ageing.  On the palate the wine is crisp and fresh, flavours of peach, apple and zesty lime come through.  Good weight and length with a persistent mousse and a dry, elegant finish.
