Nelson Cenci Extra Brut
Chardonnay 80% and Pinot Bianco 20%
A Franciacorta that seeks to highlight our late founder’s love for artisan wines.
Made without the use of any liqueur d’expedition, this is a pure product, which, after disgorgement, has been topped up only with the blend it was made from, with just a small dosage of 3 grammes per litre. This is an ultra-sophisticated, top-of-the-range Franciacorta: pure, crisp and linear. The ideal partner for fish crudités, seafood such as oysters (in perfect champenoise style), it can also be enjoyed as an appetizer before lunch or dinner. A single-vintage wine, with a limited number of bottles produced every year.
