Tag: Regionensigi.hiss @ 06:53

New Franciacorta DOCG production regulations were published in the Italian government’s Official Gazette. The major changes are:

1. An increase in minimum planting density per vineyard.

 2. A lengthening of minimum time for refinement on yeasts for Satèn to 31 months and Riserva to 67 months.

 3. Reserves from vintages to be kept as an available reserve of wine to be utilized when production situations arise in the winery requiring these reserves be drawn from.

 The Curtefranca DOC replaces that of Terre di Franciacorta, while Sebino IGT will also be a white.

 The World of Fine Wine tasted 27 top examples of Franciacorta recently. The results will be published in issue 21 in September. To ensure that you receive your copy, click HERE .
