The Franciacorta Metodo Classico Satèn Brut Museum Release DOCG 2008 by Ricci Curbastro is a liquid work of art, an ode to the elegance and typicity of Franciacorta. Made from 100% Chardonnay grapes fermented in oak barrels, this wine has been awarded for six consecutive years, from 2001 to 2006, with the Cinque Grappoli by the Italian Sommelier Association (AIS) and with the Tre Bicchieri by the Gambero Rosso guide. Visually, the wine presents itself with a golden luminosity that invites tasting. On the nose, it is a riot of ripe fruit, spices, and yeasts, with toasted and almond notes adding complexity. On the palate, elegance melds with structure, supported by a light acidity that enlivens the sensory experience. As for pairings, this Franciacorta is ideal with raw fish dishes, oysters, or a porcini mushroom risotto. Imagine enjoying it on a summer evening, under a starry sky, in good company.
