Extra Dry Docg

Pavò Extra Dry DOCG, obtained from grapes harvested in the winery’s vineyards, is not a typical Franciacorta for this zone of production. This is an assembly of Chardonnay (95%) and Pinot Nero (5%), a blend originating from the desire to valorise all the best Pavò Franciacorta vineyards such as those in Provaglio d’Iseo. Vines yielding grapes of different characteristics which contribute to the production of a unique sparkling wine unique for its aromatic array, elegance and personality.

“Brilliant straw yellow with golden hues, criss-crossed by a fine and vivacious perlage. Alongside the notes of Renetta apples and white peaches, a decisive hint of candied peel, acacia honey and nut brittle, this wine meets the palate with the well-defined freshness of citrus fruits, progressing to a diffused saltiness underscored by its carbonic creaminess, fully corresponding with its fruity profile. Muffin tossed in Gorgonzola.” (cit. Guida AIS “Vitae”).
