What is Franciacorta?

a geographic area that is also an Italian Wine Region

Franciacorta Area

Where is Franciacorta? Franciacorta is situated in the norther area of Italy, between the province of Brescia and Bergamo, not far from the capital of Lombardy, so it’s perfect for a day trip from Milan.

Imagine a land gently laying in the south of Lake Iseo, there are so many tracks and point of interest that will seduce you. From hillside vineyards, small historical villages to medieval towers, castles, monastery, Renaissance palaces and luxury villas. It is definitely a region rich of history where, from long time ago, nobles persons lived in and where monks started to produce wines that later become famous. However, Franciacorta is also nature: the natural reserve of Torbiere del Sebino is a wetland of international prominence.

For this reasons Franciacorta is the ideal place for a short break or for a holiday also for the proximity to the international airport of Orio al Serio in Bergamo. Conveniently situated at a driving time of approximately 30 minutes by car from Franciacorta, the airport is connected to the main European cities.

If you are a wine lover, a food lover or simply a tourist, come to Franciacorta to discover excellent products, classy restaurants and sites of cultural interest!

the name of a wine

Franciacorta Wine

In this beautiful and small region you can appreciate also the famous sparkling wine, known as the Italian champagne, considered the Italian’s top sparkling wine. Here the grapes give life to high-quality wines, among them the Franciacorta D.O.C.G, which has reached high levels of excellence and appreciated worldwide.

The grapes used to obtain a Franciacorta wine are a blend of chardonnay (a minimum of 50 percent), pinot noir and pinot blanc grapes.

In the Franciacorta flute, we have a straw yellow color with golden reflections, fine and persistent bubbles, a characteristic bouquet of fermentation in the bottle, smell of bread crust and yeast enriched with subtle notes of citrus fruit and nuts (almonds, hazelnuts, and dried figs).

The wine is fruity, mineral, fresh, fine, harmonious and perfect for an aperitif or to drink with Italian cheese or fish; if you are a bubble lover you'll drink it during the whole meal!

a method of production of Sparkling Wine

Franciacorta Method

In the world, they call it the Classic method.

In Champagne, they call it the  Champenoise method.

In Franciacorta, we call it the Franciacorta method.

However, what does it mean? It is a method of production for sparkling wine through a secondary fermentation in a bottle.

The Franciacorta wine is the first wine in Italy produced exclusively by the classic-method of fermentation in the bottle to win, in 1995, the status of D.O.C.G. Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (Denomination of Controlled and Guaranteed Origin).
