The Quinque of Cantina Uberti is a Franciacorta that represents the synthesis of five vintages of Chardonnay grapes from the best plots of the estate. The vines are over 30 years old and grow on soils of morainic origin rich in pebbles and skeleton.
Light yellow in color, Uberti's Quinque is presented in the glass with a subtle and very persistent perlage. The nose opens with intense aromas of yellow pulp fruit, lime, cream and toasted almonds. The taste is fresh and decisive with a savory and pleasant persistence. An ideal sparkling wine to combine with fish-based main courses.
Following a rigorous selection of the bunches and a light pressing, the must of each single harvest ferments in natural oak vats and remains on its noble lees for about 6 months. Subsequently each wine is transferred to a single vat containing the assembly of the previous vintages, ending with the fifth harvest. Finally, after the tirage it spends over 80 months on the lees. Before being put on the market, Uberti's Quinque spends 6 months in the bottle.
