||FRANCIS I: King of France from 1515 to 1547. His name is directly linked to the history of sparkling wine. At the time, one happened to come across 'sparkling wine' by chance, and this was considered a defect. The French king, who was busy modernising his court, declaimed the new virtue of sparkling wine against its detractors. These cultural claims could thus form the background that then led to the deliberate search for the technique to make wine 'deliberately' sparkling. This is the reason why the company dedicates an entire Franciacorta line to this historical character.
||Franciacorta hills, in the towns of Erbusco, Adro, Cazzago San Martino-Calino (Brescia) in the company vineyards.
||Picked up by hand and selected.
||The must obtained from a light pressing of the grapes ferments in stainless steel containers and it stays standing until the placing in bottle, where the refermentation of the wine occurs.
||Only after long contact with the yeasts for at least 36 months, the bottles are subjected to the operation of remuage and disgorgement. After 6 months from disgorgement, the wine is maketed.
||It is a good match for all courses.
