Bellavista Vittorio Moretti Franciacorta Extra Brut Vintage 2013
Region: Franciacorta, Lombardia, Italy
Bottle size: 75cl
Grape: 60% Chardonnay 40% Pinot Noir
Bright yellow with shining and crystal-clear pale jade highlights. On the nose, floral hints of elderflower, peaches, exotic fruit and citrus, flint, white chocolate and pastries. These follow through to the palate, along with freshness, energy, minerality, saltiness and complexity. Explosive mouthfeel, with well-structured but extremely silky texture.
This estate makes Italy’s finest sparkling wines from its 200 hectares of vineyard situated in a natural amphitheatre in the western part of the Franciacorta zone. The glacial soil is full of stones and provides the ideal environment for the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes used in the production of their Franciacorta.
