Majolini Franciacorta Millesimato Electo
Grapes Chardonnay 80% Pinot Noir 20%
The grapes are fermented separately at around 18˚C, a part of the Chardonnay is fermented and aged in barriques. In the spring the wine is assembled and bottled, it spends at least 36 months on the lees prior to disgorgement.
A serious vintage wine with toast, butter grapefruit and tarragon flavours. Somehow the exuberance is restrained and tempered with a mineral element. A rare and fine wine. 13%

Wine-Pages.com Tom Cannavan: "Similar, glowing bright golden colour. Extra dimension of freshness and beautifully bright, flower-touched aromatics, with yeastiness and biscuit and a lovely fruit clarity. There's a burst of tangerine and bright, crunchy green apple acidity, giving this a thrilling vibrancy on the palate, though still with that hint of toast of the barrel and autolysis in the finish. 93/100."
