Il Territorio

The area known as Franciacorta lies in the heart of Lombardy, one hour from Milan, bordering Lake Iseo. Its approximately 200 square kilometers include 19 municipalities in the province of Brescia. The gentle rolling hills, bounded to the west by the Oglio river and to the northeast by the furthest extensions of the Rhaetian Alps, owe their ancient origins to the retreating glaciers that, over 10,000 years ago, formed the natural amphitheater where Franciacorta is nestled.

The morainic origin of this area gives to the soil an extraordinarily rich mineral content that, together with the variety of its components, determines the key factors for a high quality viticulture, which can be fully appreciated in the sensorial characteristics of every Franciacorta.
