Winemaking: The Cuvée Prestige Rosé is made from the separate vinification of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The Pinot Noir grapes, once transported over the vat, are separated from the stalks and berries fall into them from above by gravity. The maceration "pink" is carried out for 24-36 hours: only a few hours to "seize the moment" to get that special, delicate shade of pink that distinguishes the Franciacorta Rosé in the bottle. As a result, the juice separated from the skins fermented in small oak barrels and stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. The Chardonnay grapes are vinified in the traditional manner, with the pressing of whole clusters. The best fractions of the must ferment in vats, separately. After 8 months of refinement the "magic ritual" of the creation of the cuvée, assembling the base wines of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
