Produced in only 1000 bottles, the Franciacorta D.O.C.G. Riserva of Elisabetta Abrami is obtained from the white wine-making of a cuvee, whose Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes refine for at least 60 months on the yeasts.
Such refinement enriches the wine with an intense yellow colour, fine perlage and complex aromas, from the yeast to the bread-crust, with a fresh and caressing taste.
Decantation: Addition of selected yeasts and fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The cuvée is made in spring. After the addition of sugar syrup and yeast for secondary fermentation, it is bottled and stacked on its side to aid re-fermentation and slow refinement

Franciacorta unique taste
The unique characteristics of Franciacorta wine are achieved through the all-important meticulous and accurate selection of the land and of the grape variety. Great importance is placed on the grape pressing phase: only the best must, obtained from the soft and gentle first press, is used in the production of Elisabetta Abrami wine.
