For those in search of a true classic, here is a wine that works both as an aperitif and throughout a meal. It will bring out the flavours of a variety of dishes, from rice and pasta to white meats or fresh and medium-aged cheeses, without ever overpowering them. It goes well with a number of traditional Franciacorta recipes, from casoncelli (stuffed ravioli) to lake fish (perch and char).

VINIFICATION

Gentle, gradual pressing of clusters with fractioning of the must; alcoholic fermentation in steel vats.

PAIRINGS

Perfect as an aperitif and throughout the meal, pairing beautifully with typical recipes of the Franciacorta area, such as casoncelli (ravioli) and fresh-water fish (perch and char). It brings out the best qualities of dishes based on rice, pasta, white meats, fresh and medium-aged cheeses.
