Description

Details

Franciacorta La Montina is now considered to be one of the best glasses of bubbly produced in Italy. If you say to the good people of Franciacorta that they make Italian Champagne, they wouldn't be pleased but in basically, this wine has many of the characteristics of its more illustrious counterpart from France. This is high quality sparkling wine made in the 'Metodo Classico' , the process of second fermentation and long ageing in bottle. They have always been committed to quality at La Montina, investing in 1999 in a huge 'Marmonier' wine press to make sure they extract the best quality juice. In the winery, no pumps are used, wine is transported by gravity alone. They age for longer than the appellation laws decree and the yields in the vineyard are kept as low as possible. Michele Bozza now runs the winery having taken over from his father. Located at the beautiful Villa Baiana, Michele has raised the reputation of La Montina into the stars and yet the wines are still very reasonably priced. The Millesimato or vintage wine is made only in the best years when the fruit quality is very high. It is a rich toasty, brioche scented wine of sheer style and drinkability. Made from 60% Chardonnay e 40% Pino Noir and spending 40 months ageing in the bottle on the fine lees, it a wine of serious investment in its production. Although already nearly 8 years old, the current vintage is still young and will age very well becoming powerful and profound after 10-15 years in bottle. At £35 a bottle compared to say £70 for a Champagne equivalent like Bollinger Grand Annee, this is outstanding value vintage wine.
