35.00 CHF

Cuvée n.7 is the most contemporary Franciacorta in the Lo Sparviere portfolio. Cuvée n.7 embodies the terroir identity of Lo Sparviere and the unique qualities of our terroir, all skilfully interpreted by oenologist Francesco Polastri. The wine was created in 2014 from a selection of 10 cuvées assembled with varying percentages of wines from individual vineyards. Cuvée number 7 proved to embody the perfect style to describe our growing area, hence the name “Cuvée n.7 “. A 100% Chardonnay Franciacorta whose crisp freshness is immediately appealing.

Vinification

The small crates of Chardonnay are left for 24-36 hours in a refrigerating room with a temperature of 4°C, cooling the grapes to 10°C to improve varietal aroma extraction. The chilled grapes are taken to the press for a gentle, whole-cluster pressing, extracting no more than 60% of the free-run must. Fermentation is carried out slowly at 16°C to preserve varietal aromas. The base wine ages sur lie for about 7 months in stainless steel tanks and bottling for tirage follows in May
