The luxury Italian Champagne equivalent, made using the same Champenoise method.
From a very small historic producer using organic and biodynamic production practices in Palazzolo sull’Oglio, Province of Brescia the Lombardy region of Italy.
Fresh, crisp, dry and delicious. Intense straw color with bright gold hints, abundant froth, fresh brioche and a veil of hazelnut with a very fine, rich, creamy perlage.
The Italians know the secret of Franciacorta and until now have been keeping it all to themselves. It’s cheaper than Champagne but production standards demand higher quality in many key areas. Organic level sulphites, single vineyard, Artisan product. Think you like Champagne? Then you’ll adore this!
The family story dates back to the silk traders in this area. Annual production of only 30,000 bottles, incredible quality and purity. All harvested by hand and created with the care and attention of a master craftsman. Never before sold outside of Italy. This is definitely one to be cellared or of course, it is already perfect to be enjoyed now. 75% Chardonnay and 25% Pinot Noir is used in the blend.
