Franciacorta Brut Docg Levi' Magnum 1.5L - Lenza
The Lenza farm has been based since 1964 on the slopes of Monte Orfano, a pre-Alpine relief that emerges from the plain on the southwestern edge of Franciacorta in the Province of Brescia, where Giuseppe Lenza works with passion soils and vineyards to become productive hectares for special wines , like his Franciacorta DOGC Brut Levì Magnum .
The color is straw yellow with greenish reflections. The scent is delicate, of fine and clean yeast while the taste is savory, pleasantly fresh.
