Winery Notes:
The Bellavista Cuvée Brut - to which we dedicate our utmost care and attention - is undoubtedly the Franciacorta that we ask, in terms of quality and style, to act as an ambassador for the true worth of our area. It derives from the combination of at least 30 selections of wine: these come from more than 100 plots of land, cultivated in 10 different communes of the Franciacorta appellation. A significant proportion of the wines from which it is made up ferments and matures for seven months in small oak barrels. To this great amalgam of olfactory and gustatory variants we add the scents and flavours of the “reserve wines”, coming from between 6 and 9 earlier vintages. The precious contribution of these “reserve wines” serves to fine-tune Bellavista’s consistent, signature style and, especially, gives our Franciacorta Cuvée Brut its inimitable appeal and finesse. The grapes used are approximately 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Nero and Pinot Bianco.

It has a pale, lively and decidedly persistent mousse; its perlage is fine and continuous. Its colour is yellow, with marked greenish reflections. The bouquet is ample and inviting, with rich notes of white flowers and ripe fruit (decana pears), along with subtle hints of chlorophyll and vanilla. The flavour echoes the sensations on the nose, and the aftertaste is tangy and satisfying. Its depth and remarkable harmony are evident in its splendid elegance and balance.
