AperitifCharcuterieDeep Fried Foods
Franciacorta is nestled into the foothills of the alps, on the south side of Lake Iseo, in the Lombardy region of Italy. Franciacorta is Italy’s premium traditional method sparkling wine- think Champagne with an Italian flair!
Il Mosnel winery is a historic Franciacorta producer; run by the Barboglio family since the early 1800s.
The Mosnel Brut has been produced since 1979 and is a house favourite. It is a blend of 40% Pinot Nero, 40% Chardonnay, and 20% Pinot Bianco.
It has a subtle, delicate bouquet that the bubbles carry out of the glass. It is crisp and dry on the palate with an elegant, smooth texture and is impressively balanced with a long-lasting mousse and extremely tiny bubbles. A lovely choice as an apéritif, Il Mosnel Brut is also ideally suited to pairing with a wide range of fish, vegetable, and white meat dishes.
80% of the wine is vinified and rests in stainless steel tanks, while 20% sees large oak barrels. After a minimum of 18 months aging sur lie, the wine, produced in the méthode traditionelle, is disgorged and then aged for another 24 months in bottle before release.
