Antica Fratta
Franciacorta 'Cuvee Real'
NV
94
In a word, suave, from the pinprick perlage onward. The slightest tinge of bread dough on the nose is quickly superseded by honeyed apple, lemon chiffon, and lime leaf along with hints of fig, white flowers, and the salinity that, following a zing of acidity, rings on the medium-bodied, minerally midpalate before touches of peach and almond come into play. A blend of 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Noir, it’s an expression of clarity and confidence.

Medium straw yellow colour with bright reflections and persistent fine mousse. On the nose intense aroma of herbs, yellow apple, jasmine blossom as well as light savouriness. Fresh and juicy on the palate, linear with good flow and long finish.

A blend of 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Nero. Bright, medium-deep yellow; aromas of white peach, citrus and magnolia – very appealing! Medium-bodied, this is well made with excellent overall harmony, very good acidity, notable typicity and very good persistence; the finish is clean with a distinct note of minerality. I love the delicacy and finesse of this wine! Enjoy tonight through 2025.

The NV Franciacorta Cuvée Real Brut is a blend of 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Noir that is aged on its yeasts for two years. The wine shows crisp freshness and sharp delineation with direct aromas of citrus, white melon and golden apple. Additional volume and texture are added thanks to the creamy nature of the mouthfeel that finishes with baked bread and croissant flavors. The perlage is tight and persistent. Annual production is large with 120,000 bottles released. Drink date 2018-2025

Dusty dried flowers mix with crushed rocks, lemon oil and opal apple as the NV Brut Cuvee Real blossoms in the glass. This is supple and round, quite elegant in feel, with a balanced inner sweetness offsetting hints of sour citrus, an almondy richness forms toward the close. Nuances of burnt sugar and brown spice linger, even as the Cuvee Real maintains a marvelous freshness. There's so much pleasure to be found here. Drinking window: 2022-2026.

A balanced, biscuity sparkling with aromas of dried apples, lemons, pastries and toasted almonds. Medium-bodied with vibrant acidity and sleek bubbles. Drink now.

A dry (4 g/l), juicy lemon style with just a touch of red fruit sweetness. This is a delightfully fresh Franciacorta without being too aggressive.
