Ferghettina 'Milledi', Franciacorta DOCG
Fresh and elegant with white flower and citrus notes. The palate is
complex with brioche and more citrus characters giving a lovely weight
and texture. The mousse is fine and persistent.
Italian sparkling wine is not all about Prosecco, as leading Franciacorta producer Ferghettina has proved time and time again.
Established in 1990 by Roberto Gatti - after buying a tiny winery and
three hectares of vines from a family friend - Ferghettina has grown
into one of the region’s most prized Franciacorta producers.
In 2005 a new winery was opened overlooking the beautiful Lake Iseo
and from here Roberto and his daughter Laura produce 300,000 bottles of
wine annually from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. Meticulous
attention to detail, skilful blending and long bottle maturation give
Ferghettina’s wines great finesse and individuality.
Secondary fermentation is in bottle , and the wine spends 36 months on its lees. This will pair a number of grilled fish or poultry dishes - but also try with sushi.
