Parosé 2010 Riedizione 2020

FRANCIACORTA ROSÉ PAS DOSÉ DOCG

The elegant touch of Chardonnay to the forward personality of Pinot Noir; the latter, vinified briefly on the skins to gain a coppery-edged pink-gold hue, plays the dominant role in the cuvée

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.

Parosé 2010 Riedizione 2020, on the other hand, marries the elegant touch of Chardonnay to the forward personality of Pinot Noir; the latter, vinified briefly on the skins to gain a coppery-edged pink-gold hue, plays the dominant role in the cuvée. This 2010 vintage was originally released in 2015 after four years sur lie; disgorged in late 2020, it returns in 2021, likewise after nine and a half years’ maturation sur lie

Technical features

Vinification
Only the free-run must (the first fraction of the must) goes to produce Franciacorta Parosé, which owes its delicate hue to a brief maceration of Pinot Noir on the skins. The must fermented in small 225-lire oak barrels and remained there for six months, until the following spring. The cuvée was assembled, the “liqueur de triage” added, and the bottles were laid down for the prise de mousse.

Maturation ageing
The tiered-up bottles remained in our cellars for a minimum of 36 months before riddling. The sediment was then removed and they were given the Pas Dosé-style liqueur d’expedition, then corked and wired. This Franciacorta rested in the bottle a further six months before release
