Buy La Valle Franciacorta Extra Brut Naturalis
Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2009 Franciacorta Millesimato Naturalis Extra Brut offers a clean approach with a long succession of citrus, white peach, almond and toasted pine nut. The complexity is moderate yet this is not a wine to underestimate. It lingers long on the palate thanks to spicy flavors of cinnamon, candied fruit and toasted bread that are equally subtle and nuanced. Good acidity and sharp effervescence appears on the close. This blend of 65% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Bianco and 25% Pinot Nero is aged on the lees for 40 months.  (Sep 2015)

Wine maker notes
La Valle® “Naturalis”, the pure wine, the most “natural” since it is enriched with only a minimal dose of sugar in the final stage of its creation. An extra brut that is the expression of the rigor of the La Valle® line and the perfection that accompanies every phase of its vinification. Fruit of a meticulous selection and a harmonious assembly of Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco, and Pinot Nero, Naturalis is a prestigious millesime created only in the years of true excellence indicated on the label; it rests in the darkness and silence of the La Valle cellars for at least 30 months. “Naturalis” is a refined and sincere wine of strong character, exquisitely fresh and incisive, regal, pure and intense in spirit, that expresses with charm and elegance all its naturalness; it is a precious, unique nectar. It is an important and refined aperitif and a splendid companion for shellfish, white meat, and game.

La Valle®, owned by the Pezzola family, is in Rodengo Saiano in the heart of the beautiful hills of Franciacorta. It is located in a region particularly well suited for viticulture, near a famous Olivetan monastery of the 11th century, a few kilometers from Lake Iseo and Brescia in Lombardy. It takes its name from the winery’s main property, La Valle® (bought by the family’s ancestors in long-ago 1890, as a notary deed of the time demonstrates) which has always been a vineyard. In 1990 Eugenio and Giulia Pezzola founded the winery known as La Valle® exclusively for the production of prestigious Franciacorta sparkling wines and they dedicated it their father Giovanni and their uncle Innocenzo, who had always been particularly attached to this land.
