A Wine Steeped in Tradition

Franciacorta is a prestigious DOCG sparkling wine region nestled in Lombardy, Italy. Renowned for its meticulous production methods, similar to those used in Champagne, Franciacorta wines are known for their exceptional quality and elegance. Ferghettina, a leading producer in the region, has been crafting exceptional Franciacorta since its establishment in 1950. Their dedication to tradition and innovation shines through in every bottle of their Brut.

Unveiling the Flavour Profile

The Ferghettina Franciacorta Brut is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, vinified using the traditional Metodo Classico technique. This secondary fermentation in bottle allows the wine to develop a delicate mousse and a symphony of flavours.

On the Nose:

  • Initial aromas: As you raise the flute to your nose, you'll be greeted by a wave of fresh citrus notes like lemon and grapefruit.
  • Subtle hints: Delicate floral scents of white blossom and honeysuckle emerge, followed by hints of white peach and ripe pear.
  • Biscuity notes: A touch of brioche and biscuit adds complexity, hinting at the time spent ageing on the lees.

On the Palate:

  • First sip: The initial impression is one of delightful freshness, with a vibrant acidity that cuts through the creaminess of the mousse.
  • Flavour development: The citrus and orchard fruit flavours from the nose translate beautifully onto the palate, joined by hints of white almond and minerality.
  • Finish: The finish is crisp and persistent, leaving a lingering sensation of elegance and refreshment.

Food Pairings to Delight

The Ferghettina Franciacorta Brut's versatility makes it a fantastic choice for a variety of dishes. Here are some perfect food pairings to enhance your dining experience:

  • Canapés and Starters: Light and delicate starters like smoked salmon blinis, asparagus with hollandaise sauce, or a selection of cured meats and cheeses pair beautifully with the bubbly's acidity and refreshing character.
  • Seafood: The wine's minerality and citrus notes complement a variety of seafood dishes. Try it with grilled scallops, pan-seared halibut, or even a classic fish and chips.
  • Poultry and Risotto: Roasted chicken or turkey with creamy sauces find a perfect match in the Ferghettina's acidity and fruitiness. Creamy risotto dishes with mushrooms or asparagus also create a delightful harmony.
  • Desserts: For a decadent treat, pair the Brut with fruit tarts, lemon meringue pie, or even a creamy panna cotta.
