Franciacorta Gran Cuvee Brut - a great sparkling wine of high class, which is different from the traditional Brut crisp, perfectly recognizable, stylish taste and unique aroma with notes of flowers, Artemisia (wormwood plant of the genus) and laurel. The second distinguishing feature of Grand Cuvee can be called a high-quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, showing a blend of perfect balance. The third difference between this wine is the fact that more than 30% of the wine is fermented and aged for 7 months in small oak barrels, acquiring additional complexity of flavor and aromatic characteristics.
Bellavista - means "beautiful view" and it was so aptly named winery. It is located on a hill with amazing views of the fields, the city and the church, and Lake Iseo shimmers beautifully against the backdrop of the Alps. Vittorio Moretti was in the sphere of wine accidentally in 1970, when he wanted to make a few bottles of wine for friends and business partners. At the same time, he discovered that he liked the process and decided to do it professionally, creating a winery. It all began with the planting of vines Pinot Noir, density of 5000 vines per hectare, but later found a bug, it appeared Chardonnay vines. That's so funny story began winery.
