Franciacorta chosen by Milan is the Millesimato 2010 Brut, obtained from grapes picked only in the best
vineyards. It is composed of Chardonnay which gives the wine elegance and finesse and Pinot Noir which imparts structure and life. This blend combined with a very gentle pressing produces a distinctly golden hued wine of unmistakeable personality. The mousse is soft and the bubbles are persistent and long. The olfactory notes and hints of acacia honey are combined with engaging stone fruits and a whiff of roasting. In the mouth the racy acidity balances with a full body and depth of flavour. Millesimato works supremely well with full flavoured but balanced foods.
