Located in Monticelli Brusati, southeast of Lake Iseo, the Lo Sparviere farm is a timeless place that speaks of history and love for the land. Its name derives from the depiction of the sparrowhawk placed on the majestic fireplace inside the hall of the manor house, the historical core of the winery.
Lo Sparviere is housed in an old country residence dating back to the 16th century. At its helm is Mrs Monique Poncelet Gussalli Beretta, a determined woman who strongly wanted to recover the history and charm of this ancient corner of Franciacorta.
Mrs Monique inherited her passion for the land and the vineyard from her father-in-law, the lawyer Franco Gussalli, whose family had conducted numerous agricultural activities in Franciacorta for generations. These included the production of small quantities of wine initially intended for friends and family.
That same passion was picked up and kept alive over time by expanding and developing the wine business. Today, the estate covers more than 60 hectares, 30 of which are planted with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, all of which have been organically farmed since 2013.
