TASTING NOTES

When one speaks of Bellavista, one speaks of the history of Franciacorta and Italian wine, one of the best known and most successful brands. The company came to life in 1977 when Vittorio Moretti decided to invest in the countryside around Erbusco with the intention of rivalling the better known French in the production of Metodo Classico sparkling wine. The name of the winery derives from the hill on which it stands, which looks out over Lake Iseo, the Po Valley and the nearby Alps. Today, Bellavista counts on over two hundred hectares divided into more than one hundred plots scattered throughout the DOC zone's territory for its range of climatic and geological micro-diversity that is unique at a national level and that allows it to have wines that exemplify what Franciacorta has to offer. Franciacorta Extra Brut “Vittorio Moretti” represents one of the greatest expressions that Franciacorta is capable of expressing. It is a wine that is only produced in the best years, with a blend of Chardonnay (60%) and Pinot Noir (40%). A blend that stems from the desire to enhance all the major Bellavista plots such as those in Erbusco, Nigoline, Torbiato and Colombaro. Vineyards that give different characteristics and lead to a sparkling wine that is unique due to its aromatic completeness, elegance and personality. The grapes are harvested exclusively by hand, fermented and matured in small French oak barrels for several months. To conclude the ageing process, the bottles remain on yeasts for 7 years. Once in the glass what is striking about this sparkling wine from Lombardy is the soft, fine perlage that adds brightness to an intense golden yellow colour. The bouquet is broad, articulate and complex. It includes notes of ripe white fruit, sweet spices, candied citrus fruits, honey and roasted nuts such as almonds and hazelnuts. On the palate, it is intense, complex, soft, broad and creamy. This is a very elegant wine, perfect for a romantic fish and shellfish based dinner. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Bellavista

In 1977, Vittorio Moretti founded the Bellavista winery on a family property of a few hectares in Franciacorta, named after the hill of the same name, an incredible meeting point between Lake Iseo, the Po Valley and the Alps. The entrepreneur expanded the business by purchasing new vineyards, reaching the current 180 hectares. Bellavista wines are recognised as some of the best in Italian sparkling wine and the prestige of Lombardy sparkling wines. This is thanks to the natural processing with ancient presses to obtain a 'sweet' pressing, the must of which is then fermented partially in oak barrels, the rest in stainless steel tanks. Many selections are obtained in this way, from different vintages, terroirs and maturation periods, respecting the history of Franciacorta and organic and sustainable processing. It is not only sparkling wines such as Alma and Satén that come from this area, but also excellent white wines from Lombardy such as Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc. Bellavista's innovation does not stop here: particular attention is paid to image. In fact, the rebranding of the labels and bottles is recent, communicating the link with the terroir and the company values. Everything contributes to the creation of a classy, original and elegant product, also thanks to its fruity aromas with fresh nuances. Name and address of producer/distributor: Bellavista - Via Bellavista, 5, 25030 Erbusco (BS). Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
