Extra Brut 61 Berlucchi is a Franciacorta that reconfirms the excellence of this brand that is a symbol of Italian sparkling wine production. Since the 1960s, the Berlucchi winery has established itself as a point of reference in the Franciacorta territory, making a decisive contribution to the affirmation of this Lombardy appellation. The cuvée is made with a majority percentage of Chardonnay, in perfect coherence with the tradition of the territory, supplemented by a balance of Pinot Noir. The grapes come from a selection of the estate's most suitable plots, located in no fewer than 19 communes of Franciacorta. At the end of the harvest, vinification is carried out separately by grape variety and vineyard. The bunches of grapes are subjected to a gentle pressing and the free-run juice is fermented in temperature-controlled steel tanks. After a few months of ageing, the basic vintage wines are blended, to which 20% of reserve wines are added. The second fermentation takes place in the bottle according to the Metodo Classico, with at least 24 months resting on the lees.
Berlucchi Extra Brut 61 is a Franciacorta of remarkable expressive finesse and clear, vertical character. It has a brilliant light yellow colour, crossed by a luminous, delicate and persistent perlage. The bouquet is refined and elegant, with scents of white flowers, orange blossom, fragrances of citrus peel, aromas of white-fleshed fruit, hints of bread crust, nuances of pain brioche and small pastries, almond and dried fruit. The attack on the palate is soft and creamy, with a harmonious fruitiness, balanced by a clear sapid vein and a finish of lively freshness.
