ABOUT:

‘Bellavista’ means beautiful view and this winery certainly lives up to the name.  It’s situated in the western part of Franciacorta in a stunning natural amphitheatre where the soils are stony and glacial making them ideal for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. After fermentation, a maturation of seven months in small oak barrels takes place. The wine is then blended with ‘reserve wines’ from seven to nine earlier vintages to ensure a consistent signature style in every bottle. The wine is then left to age on its lees for two and a half years before release. All riddling is still done by hand. Check the bottom of your bottle to see the mark!
