Biondelli | Franciacorta Brut
Orange blossom and almond biscotti on the nose and ultra fine bubbles. Super crisp palate with bright citrus and mineral grip. Elegant and fine blanc de blancs from this producer. This is right up there with a well made Côte des Blancs from Champagne.
The centre of this family wine estate lies in a gorgeous 16th century farmhouse located in front of the historic medieval castle of Bornato (today’s villa Orlando) and at the inception of the charming Longarone Valley, settled near the village of Bornato, in the province of Brescia.
These days the ancient farmhouse has been completely restored and developed with the construction of an underground wine cellar. This modern structure is perfect to vinify the different types of grapes grown on their Estate with the main focus on Chardonnay for Franciacorta Brut and Satèn Brut.
Today, very much a family affair, Carlottavio Biondelli, along with his wife Mariella and his sons Francesco and Joska, run the business with passion and devotion.
100% chardonnay sourced from "Nave", "Paini", "Stazione" vineyards 8 hectares in Bornato di Cazzago San Martino | Organically certified | Aged for 24 months in the cellar
