Vinification

The whole cluster Chardonnay grapes were given a soft and delicate pressing. The finest part of the must, i.e. the first pressing, was first fermented both in stainless steel tanks and in small oak barrels. Towards the spring of the following year, the wine underwent a second fermentation, this time in bottle, and remained on its lees for a period of 48 months.

Historical Data

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.

Tasting Notes

Straw yellow in color with light golden highlights, the wine shows a creamy bubbling with light but continuous bubbles. The aromas are delicate with floral and white fruit notes. The palate is balanced and harmonious, that of an elegant wine of class and breed. The ideal serving temperature for the wine is between 45° and 50° Fahrenheit (7°-9° centigrade). Matches with food and occasions for drinking: Particularly suitable as an aperitif with light appetizers or pasta with fish sauces, baked or roasted fish, or white meat.

Tenuta Montenisa

Tenuta Montenisa

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.
