Established Date: 1977
The Bellavista Alma Brut Franciacorta it is made from mostly Chardonnay grapes, followed by pinot nero and a small proportion of pinot bianco. Made in the ‘traditional method‘, the different parcels of wine are all vinified separately. 15% of the wines used in the blend are fermented and then matured for seven months in small oak barrels. These wines are then blended with the “reserve wines”, which come from between six and nine earlier vintages. Once blended, the wine is bottled and the second fermentation takes place in bottle. It is then left to age on the lees for two and a half years before release. The contribution of the reserve wines ensures Bellavista’s consistent, signature style in every bottle.
Sommelier’s Recommendation: One of the most iconic and prestigious sparkling in the Italian (and global) wine scene. Fine bubbles, fresh and delicate on the palate but at the same time persistent, with notes of white flowers, pear and the typical bread/toast aroma. A great example of elegance that will bring your tasting experience to another level.
