A cuvée of only Pinot Noir grapes and a refinement of 36 months minimum, are the foundation of the Blanc de Noir Millesimato of Elisabetta Abrami.
An extremely fine and persistent perlage, a complex and strong taste, notes of flowers, they all define this Franciacorta D.O.C.G. as a superb wine to complement fish courses, shell-fish and meat. In other words an excellent wine for a whole meal.
