Franciacorta DOCG

Franciacorta is complex. On the one hand, Franciacorta is a relatively young Italian wine-growing region in northern Italy, furthermore, the term also stands for sparkling wines with bottle fermentation.

 

  

 

Wines from Franciacorta are great wines and are probably the epitome of the best sparkling wines in Italy. It is nurtured between Milan and Brescia, on the shores and in the hinterland of Lake Iseo. Thanks to the lake, the Franciacorta area is well protected against extreme climatic conditions and excessive temperature fluctuations. In summer it protects from the heat of the Po Valley and in winter it reduces the icy cold from the north. Lago d'Iseo is considered a pearl, still largely spared from the largest tourist crowds, tranquil and attractive, of restrained elegance.

 

 

When dealing with Franciacorta, there is one wine house you can't avoid: the Lombard house Ca' del Bosco and with him the wine personality Maurizio Zanella have strongly influenced this wine. In 1968, Zanella opted for an oenological career that leaves nothing to chance and uses state-of-the-art technology and science to create the best conditions for the highest quality.

 

He transforms the family's small house in the dense chestnut forest into one of the most modern and advanced wineries in Italy. Zanella travels to Champagne, comes back and does just as well. Or - as some believe - even almost better. In the meantime, Franciacorta is certified DOCG and has long since stepped out of the shadow of Champagne and Prosecco. Franciacorta has managed to build up a reputation for sparkling wines in not quite fifty years, which in class, quality and sophistication in no way has to fear comparison with the French. The French imprint in the production method is recognizable, but the requirements in Franciacorta are even stricter.

 

The grapes are harvested by hand without exception, the first fermentation to clear wine takes place in steel tanks. Then the wines are blended, bottled and stored for the second fermentation. They then slumber in the cellars for at least 18 months, regularly turned gently. Only then are they allowed to bear the family name. A Franciacorta Riserva even requires a maturation period of 60 months. Or longer. This wine is a wonderfully sparkling success story that we would like to toast with you to many more to come.
