Notes of yeast, vanilla and hay on the nose. Complete, full, charming, and persistent. The Brut is a wine with a clear personality, well-defined, but with something that is enigmatic. Enveloping, dry, and determined.
The grapes are pressed gently and fermented in steel tanks at a controlled temperature of approximately 18 °C. After pressing, some of the Chardonnay is fermented and refined in small wooden barrels. The wine is aged on the lees in bottle for at least 36 months. Approximately 60,000 bottles produced per year.
The Maiolini family has been connected to wine and grapes since the 15th century. The family traces their roots to Ome, a unique place located on the northeastern border of Franciacorta, Italy’s famed sparkling wine-producing region. The red grape variety Majolina (recently recognized as a variety indigenous to Lombardy) is a testament to the long history of the family in this region.
