Winemaking

After the excellent quality Chardonnay grapes are softly pressed they undergo alcoholic fermentation in a stainless steel tank. The base wine is then bottled where it is fermented again for 30 months on the yeast.

Our tasting note

This Franciacorta Extra Brut has a bright straw-yellow colour. A bouquet of the fresh aromas of white peaches and a hint of pear supported by subtle yeasty notes of brioche and almonds. Dry on the palate with a wonderfully fine perlage and long, elegant finish.

Le Quattro Terre

We would describe the acquaintance with the two brothers Giorgio and Matteo Vezzoli, from the still young yet magnificent Le Quattro Terre vineyard, as a complete stroke of luck. The small 6.5 hectare winery in Corte Franca, at the heart of the Franciacorta region, is surrounded by a stunning backdrop of dense forests, vineyards and olive groves. The perfect foundations are established for complex and subtle Francaicorta sparkling wine - produced in manageable and small volumes (approx. 45,000 yearly) - through careful soil cultivation, consistent yield reduction and gentle pressing.
