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.
This defines a wine that complements a whole meal or red meats as well.
