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. This is unique at a national level and allows it to have wines that exemplify what Franciacorta has to offer. Franciacorta Satèn is the most delicate and elegant wine. Produced only in the best vintages, it comes from 100% Chardonnay grapes harvested in the best high hillside vineyards. The selection of the grapes during manual harvesting is meticulous to say the least, as is the slow ripening in small white oak barrels. Once assembled, the cuvée matures in the wine cellar for a minimum of 60 months. As soon as it is poured into the glass, this sparkling wine from Lombardy denotes a very bright, golden yellow colour, revitalised by a perlage that is a thing of beauty. On the nose it opens on floral notes of peach and elderflower, with clear hints of dried fruits such as hazelnut and almond. The rich and varied profile is complemented by notes of pastry and vanilla that make it very soft. On the palate it is gentle and balanced, with an effervescence that is never unpleasant, but very smooth and well-rounded, with a fresh and savoury finish. It is a perfect wine for a romantic dinner, paired with fish and shellfish based dishes. 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.
