Wine Advocate 88 points - The NV Franciacorta Primum Brut offers sharp effervescence and delineated tones of citrus, almond, honey and Golden Delicious apple. This is a tangy and fresh expression that is more informal compared to its peers. The mouthfeel is straightforward and likable with lean texture and tonic fruit flavors. There is a touch of honey and spice packed within. The blend is 65% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Bianco and 25% Pinot Nero.  (Sep 2015)

Wine maker notes
La Valle® “Primum”, the first born, the foundation of the La Valle® spirit. Bottled for the first time in 1993, made from an attentive selection of Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco, and Pinot Nero grapes from the winery’s historic vineyards which are vinified separately and then magically reunited in elegant and sublime harmony. Inside the quiet La Valle® cellars, safe from light and at a constant temperature and humidity, time does its work and “Primum” reaches its splendid maturity. It is a strong and decisive brut, well balanced between aromas and freshness, structure and elegance. Intense, complete, refined, and generous in both aroma and taste, it demonstrates its richness in its excellent harmony of lines, bubbles, colors and scents. It is the heart of the La Valle® line and its unique style remains constant and identifiable over time. “Primum” is the classic Franciacorta wine, perfect for every taste, ideal for every occasion. Excellent aperitif or perfect to accompany any dish.

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.
