Produced from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc grapes grown at Tenuta Montenisa, the aging on its lees brings out all of the wine’s intense aromas of white peaches, apples, and hints of toasted bread.
VINIFICATION AND AGING
The grapes, upon arrival in the cellars, were immediately given a soft pressing. The must obtained by this first pressing went directly into temperature controlled stainless steel fermentation tanks where the alcoholic fermentation took place. The wine then went through the process of second fermentation in bottle, refining in contact with its fine lees for a substantial period of time.
FOOD MATCHING AND SERVING TEMPERATURE
The typical floral and fruity fragrance of this Brut make the Marchese Antinori Cuvée Royal an ideal match with aperitifs, vegetable hors d’oeuvres, fish, white meat and first courses without excessive elaboration.
The ideal serving temperature for this wine is between 45 and 50 °Fahrenheit (7-9 °Centigrade).
The Marchese Antinori Cuvée Royal presents a light-yellow color along with a creamy foam and a fine and lengthy perlage. The nose is struck by the pleasurable notes of white peach, well balanced by sensations of bread crust and lees. The palate is harmonious and fully expresses the vivacity of a fine Brut.
