Whole, hand-harvested Pinot Nero clusters were brought directly to the cellar and gently pressed. The must obtained from the first pressing was transferred to stainless steel vats where primary alcoholic fermentation took place at a controlled temperature. The following spring, the wine underwent secondary fermentation in the bottle with a lengthy period of aging on the lees.

The elegant and fine character of Conte Aymo make it perfect for pairing with fish and meat dishes that are moderate to bold in flavor intensity. The ideal serving temperature is between 7 and 9 °C (45 to 48 °F).

The Montenisa estate is located around the hamlet of Calino, near Lake Iseo in the heart of the Franciacorta appellation. The vineyards surrounding the proprietary villa of the Maggi family have been the heart of the production of Marchese Antinori Franciacorta since 1999.

The estate is located in the heart of the Franciacorta production zone around the centuries-old hamlet of Calino. The vine has always been cultivated in this area of important wines. Some in fact maintain that “Franciacorta” has its origin in the phrase “Petite France”, an affectionate name given to it by Charlemagne.
