TASTING NOTES

Contadi Castaldi was founded in 1987, at the height of the Franciacorta boom, by Mariella and Vittorio Moretti. Contadi Castaldi managed to make a name for itself and be appreciated within a short time, thanks to the charisma and modern style of its sparkling wines, which are very drinkable and adaptable to all occasions. Contadi Castaldi's Franciacorta Brut is a sparkling wine with a pleasant and direct character, the strength of which lies in its refined and never commonplace simplicity. This metodo classico cuvée stars Chardonnay (80%) in a perfect blend with Pinot Noir (10%) and Pinot Blanc (10%). The choice of these base wines, aged both in stainless steel and barriques, also guarantees freshness and balance. In the glass, Brut Contadi Castaldi has a straw yellow colour, illuminated by a fine and persistent perlage. On the nose it is fragrant, with characteristic notes of bread crust and pastries, as well as citrus and floral hints, and on the palate it recirculates the fragrance from the nose together with an excellent full flavour. Ideal as an aperitif and throughout the meal, this Franciacorta pairs perfectly with finger food and raw fish. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Contadi Castaldi

The long history of Franciacorta and its 19 municipalities has ancient origins, just like the Contadi Castaldi winery. Ever since its foundation and from the earliest stages of processing, the winery's vocation for exceptional agriculture and refined production was clear. The building, which started out as a kiln, was converted into a winery thanks to the brilliant intuition of the founders, who saw the ageing cellar for their Franciacorta wines in the ancient, deep tunnels already present in the building. The rest is history: the Contaldi Castaldi winery project continues to this day, producing Lombardy wines that are rich in character. Care for the terroir and traditions are still a fundamental element in production, which over time has also made use of new technologies to offer high-quality products. The meticulous work makes it a truly unique product, able to tell the most authentic story of the tradition of the Lombardy vineyards. Name and address of producer/distributor: Contadi Castaldi - Via Colzano, 32, 25030 Adro BS. Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
