Description

Guido Berlucchi's Chardonnay (90%) and Pinot Nero (10%) grapes, cultivated in the 19 municipalities of Franciacorta, the wonderful Berlucchi '61 Brut Franciacorta is born. After a soft and progressive crushing of the grapes, the alcoholic fermentation takes place in steel vats. This cuvée is prepared in the spring following the harvest. It follows a second fermentation in the bottle and subsequent aging in contact with its own yeasts for at least 24 months, followed by another 2 months after disgorgement.

TASTING NOTES

Straw yellow colour with greenish undertones. Soft foam, with good persistence; thin and continuous perlage. The bouquets recalls fresh, rich, elegant notes of white pulp fruits and citrus scents. On the palate this Franciacorta reveals remarkable freshness and pleasant acidity; it is soft and balanced, with a pleasant citrus sensation in the finish. We suggest serving it at 6-8 °C.

FOOD MATCHING SUGGESTIONS

Berlucchi '61 Brut Franciacorta is the ideal wine as aperitif, but it can be easily sip throughout the meal, especially in combination with the typical dishes of Franciacorta zone: from casoncelli (stuffed ravioli) to lake fish (perch and char). It can exalt rice and pasta dishes, white meats or fresh and medium-aged cheeses.

Winery

Guido Berlucchi

Franco Ziliani, enthusiastic young winemaker just graduated at the Oenology School of Alba and wine consultant for several wineries of the area, saw in Guido Berlucchi the ideal figure for the adventure of taste that started the oenological "revolution" of Franciacorta wine. In 1961, after several unsuccessful attempts, Ziliani sealed three thousand bottles of Pinot di Franciacorta: wine tasting turned out great, and this convinced him to repeat the following year also bottling Max Rosé, classic method created specifically for a Berlucchi’s friend, the elegant Max Imbert, and first sparklin
