The area itself is limited and the geography of events very closely-knit: villages, villas, abbeys and castles, nestling between gardens and rows of vines, trace intersecting lines, recounting different historical eras. An area embroidered with vineyards and studded with works of art, which captivates the observer with the softness of its horizons and the variety of natural scenarios that characterise it.
An unrepeatable alchemy is achieved thanks to the special climatic conditions, the proximity of Lake Iseo and the morainic origin of the area: Franciacorta presents a cultural landscape of the highest order, with wine-growing on almost all its land, achieving exceptional results.
HISTORY & TERRITORY
A millennial history: built on ancient glacier basins, Franciacorta has inherited soils of excellent depth and mineral richness, which are strongly unleashed in wine production. Thanks to an intuition dating back to Roman times, this wine-growing area is a pure expression of the potential derived from its morainic origins.
A tradition maintained by the monastic orders, which have contributed, over the centuries, to disseminating unique vestiges in the landscape, in art and in architecture.
The name Franciacorta conjures up a geographical area, a method and the wine resulting therefrom. The specifications that have governed its production since 1967 protect the excellence of a product with a strong identity, firmly rooted in its territory.
