Tasting Notes

Caramel 2020 from Terre di Conti di Ducco has a straw yellow colour and a fine, persistent perlage.

On the nose it’s round and fragrant with notes of bread crust and nuts but also marzipan and a candied lemon.

The mouthfeel is very pleasant, round with tingly, fine bubbles. On the mouth notes of nuts and a refreshing citrusy note are back.

The finish is long and very satisfying, perfect to pair with desserts!

Geographic region in Italy

The territory of Franciacorta is a part of the Province of Brescia in the Italian Region of Lombardy. It is named after the Latin phrase “franchae curtes,” which means “free from paying duties.” Franciacorta stretches from Mount Orphan in the southwest to the northern shores of Lake Iseo, and from the river Oglio on the western frontier to Brescia on the eastern. Glacial activity formed the physical conformation that is characterized by rolling hills.
