Winemaker Notes

This cuvée embodies the quintessence of Franciacorta and the ideal harmony behind every Bellavista Franciacorta Method wine. It is made from mostly chardonnay grapes, followed by pinot nero and a small proportion of pinot bianco. At the winery, it is assembled by capable hands from many vintage selections and a few reserve wines from previous harvests, an essential treasure that perpetuates the winery’s style through time. Also important are the fermentation and elevage of part of these wines in small white oak barrels, which impart depth and complexity.

The wine is a straw yellow color with greenish highlights and a fine, continuous bead. Ample and enveloping, the aromas range from ripe fruit to fresh flowers, all the way to vanilla and pastry. In the mouth, it is mineral and sensorily complete, fresh and vibrant, and very consistent from an aromatic perspective. Long, harmonious finish.

James Suckling
Pretty aromas of bread dough, lemon and cooked apple. Fresh. Medium to full body, tangy acidity and a fruity finish. Always an outstanding sparking wine.

This remarkable operation, masterminded by owner Vittorio Moretti and winemaker Mattia Vezzola (Gambero Rosso Winemaker of the Year 2008), combines grandeur and star quality with familiarity and simplicity. The estate’s larger-than-life facilities, 3,280 feet of underground cellars, impressive contemporary architecture (helipad included), and 1,250 surrounding acres of Franciacorta soil – 462 acres of which are now under vine – leave you awestruck. Moretti founded the estate in 1977, and the first bottle of Franciacorta was released in 1979. The winery philosophy: "Every objective we reach is merely the starting point for a higher objective." In over a quarter of a century, the style of Bellavista has become a benchmark to the DOCG. Its vineyards now constitute 8% of the entire appellation, in extraordinarily favorable positions. Franciacorta’s limestone/clayey soil, richly endowed with the same elements as Champagne, is enhanced by such quality details as in-depth genetic research, organic-only fertilization, phased out harvests, parcelled out crops (over eighty selections, separately fermented in oak/stainless steel), Marmonnier and Coquard presses, up to six years’ bottle age in the cellars, refermentation directly in the bottle for the larger format sparkling wines, remuage by hand for all sparkling wines, etc... Both still and sparkling wines are from prime hillside vineyards, clonally selected material and densely planted stock. The past couple of years have seen yet another phase in the estate’s constant crescendo: increasing élevage, on average from 36 to 48 months, so as to achieve the greatest possible quality consistency and personality.
