In the land of Franciacorta, where time seems to stand still to make way for the art of winemaking, a wine is born that is a hymn to perfection: the Franciacorta Museum Release Extra Brut Metodo Classico DOCG 2009 by Ricci Curbastro. This wine is a masterpiece of balance and complexity, the result of a careful selection of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, fermented separately and then masterfully blended. Visually, this Franciacorta presents itself with an intense golden color, crossed by a very fine and persistent perlage. On the nose, it is a riot of aromas: from toasted bread to green apple, passing through notes of almond and white flowers. In the mouth, its structure is enveloping and rich, with a minerality that enhances its freshness and a long, savory finish that leaves an indelible imprint. Ideal for special occasions, this wine pairs wonderfully with raw fish dishes, oysters, and caviar. But it also does not disdain a pairing with blue cheeses or a porcini mushroom risotto.
