Ronco Calino Franciacorta Brut Millesimato 2007 (RP:88)

ITS000045A

一切始於1996年當來自Bergamo的工業家Paolo Radici在附近的山野尋找一個寧靜地方休息,當時他在他的家族生意RadiciPartecipazioni仍擔當重要角色,然後他在沒有期望下在Franciacorta遇上了機會。

由Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli擁有,位於Erbuscothe路邊老村莊求售,Arturo是1900年代來自Brescia的著名鋼琴家。建築物位於山丘上,俯視山下獨特的葡萄田,面積十公頃。眼前似曾相識的畫面重燃他的兒時夢想,就是由一個熱愛飲酒的鑑賞家,轉化為懂釀酒的生產者。

距離大屋不遠,釀酒工作於酒窖開始,風格傳統,亦與周圍環境保持和諧,寛敞的地庫容許以最佳技術釀造發酵,而上層則興建了氣氛閒適的試飲室。

土壤貧脊但變化多端,面向西北令葡萄較遲熟,所以收成季節會於一年中較清涼時期。在產量方面他們不會妥協,只限於55擔葡萄。

品酒筆記:
稻草黃色。厚和持久的泡沫。細致、持續和統一的汽泡。細致和複雜香氣,帶有熱帶成熟果實如菠蘿、芒果、木瓜和荔枝,帶有少許榲桲、柑橘花、甘菊花;有如八角和輕烤榛子的香辣感覺,尾段香氣是雲呢拿、槐花和青檸蜜糖。味道的結構和乳脂感覺明顯,輕柔撲鼻,也帶點尖銳融合在酒體之中。白花、意大利黑醋,配合雲呢拿和榛子收結味道。

 

It all started in 1996 when Paolo Radician indutrialist from Bergamo, was seeking a quiet retreat somewhere in the nearby hillside while still playing a key role in the family business, Radici Partecipazioni, that he came across an unexpected opportunity in Franciacorta.

Just down the road from Erbuscothe old estate belonging to Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli was up for sale. The latter, a pianist from Brescia, considered one of the finest musical talents of the 1900’s.The building is situated on a hillock overlooking a morainic landscape: and here it was, the vineyard kingdom, ten hectares, a unique cru. A coaxing image that rekindles his boyhood dream: to make wine and grow from being a fervent connoisseur to an actual wine producer.

Not too far away from the house the work started on the cellar, traditionally styled and in total keeping with the surroundings. The spacious basement rooms allow for vinification and fermentation with the best possible technological support while upstairs cozy wine tasting rooms were constructed.

The type of soil in the vineyard, poor yet variegated; it faces north-west thus delaying the ripening of the grapes so that the harvest is in a cooler period of the year. No compromises regarding yield per hectare, as the maximum limit is fixed at 55 quintals of grapes.
