EBB 2007 Riedizione 2023
An homage to the elegance and style of Emanuela Barzanò Barboglio, founder of Mosnel, is made from our finest Chardonnay grapes vinified in small oak ovals
THE VALUE OF TIME
Everything truly precious requires time. Calm. Patience. One must learn how to wait.
Time is one of the distinctive hallmarks that determine the Mosnel style, and it is always time that makes our wines as unique as they are. Time is the greatest ally of our Franciacortas, which slumber for month and years in the silent cellars of our Camignone estate, awaiting their destined moment.
And it was looking at time from another angle that launched the Riedizioni project: Franciacortas debuted years ago that now return to the stage after lengthy–very lengthy—sur lie maturations, having now become wines of amazing complexity yet still of surprising freshness.
Tasting the Riedizioni means embarking on a true journey into time that flows out from the glass, revealing how months and years are able to gift us novel sensations, impressions, and emotions.
An homage to the elegance and style of Emanuela Barzanò Barboglio
As densely minute yet limitlessly luminous as the Milky Way for its finesse and radiant grace, EBB Riedizione 2007 is the Franciacorta that exalts its expressive Chardonnay through the time-full lens of its lengthy maturation. Here is a wine that plumbs the full potential of its grapes in a protean dance of poly-layered fragrances of grilled almonds, hazelnut paste, and elderflower syrup that seamlessly segue into vein of freshly- roasted espresso bean lifted by a subtle floral draught and fines herbes.
Only the free-run must (the first part of the juice) went into Franciacorta EBB. The primary fermentation was carried out in small 225-litre oak barrels, where the wine matured for five months, until the following spring. The cuvée was assembled and the wine was given the liqueur de tirage for refermentaton in the bottle and subsequent maturation.
The tiered-up bottles remained in our cellars for 14 years and a half before riddling. The sediment was then removed and they were given the Extra Brut-style liqueur d’expedition, then corked and wired. This Franciacorta then rested in the bottle a further six months before release.
