The Franciacorta

The Franciacorta

Franciacorta was the first Italian sparkling wine produced exclusively by the Classic Method, or second fermentation in the bottle, to win, in 1995, official status as a Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG). Today, the front label on the wine reads simply “Franciacorta”: this one term defines the growing area, the production method, and the wine. All of Europe boasts only 10 such privileged wines, and only three of them are made by refermentation in the bottle, Cava, Champagne, and Franciacorta.

The area’s venerable wine cellars, which today have transformed themselves into cathedrals of modern winemaking technology, proudly produce the four categories of Franciacorta sparkling wines:

-   Franciacorta Non Vintage: at least 18 months

-   Franciacorta Satèn and  Franciacorta Rosé non-vintage: at least 24 months

-   Franciacorta Satèn Vintage, Franciacorta Rosé vintage and Franciacorta Vintage: at least 30 months

-   Franciacorta  Riservas Satèn, Franciacorta Riservas Rosé  and Franciacorta Riservas: at least 60 months

 and also Franciacorta’s still wines as well, Curtefranca DOC Bianco and Rosso and Sebino IGT.
