Berlucchi - Cuvèe Imperiale Vintage 2001 Ml. 750
Cuvée assembled from carefully-selected grapes from DOC vineyards in exceptional growing areas of Franciacorta, of Trentino-Alto Adige (with a Berlucchi Press House in Lavis, near Trento), and of the Oltrepò Pavese (Berlucchi Press House in Casteggio, near Pavia).
The proportions may vary slightly each year; on average they are: 20% chardonnay from Franciacorta, 40% chardonnay from the Trentino, 10% pinot blanc from the Alto Adige, and 30% pinot noir from the Oltrepò Pavese. White grapes predominate in the cuvée.
A fine choice to accompany all courses of a meal: it will add high relief to flavours of antipasti, first courses of rice or pasta, fish, light meats such as veal or poultry, as well as aged cheeses.An outstanding choice for wine lovers who appreciate wines of great structure, outstanding bouquet and rich body.
