The Franciacorta DOCG Rosé Bellavista is a special cuvée of limited production, a blend of at least 30 of the best parcels from the Bellavista vineyards, some of which were fermented and matured in small oak barrels, some in 50 to 200HL stainless steel tanks. The wine was made partially from red grapes in submerged cap maceration, where the must was in contact with the Pinot Noir skins until fermentation, giving the wine a delicate colour.
Bellavista’s vineyards enjoy some of the best sites in Franciacorta.The soil is morainic and produces fruit with character and great expressive potential. Vines are trained using the Guyot system and are 25 years old on average.They are planted at a density of 5,000 vines per hectare.
Bellavista makes Italy’s finest sparkling wines from its 200 hectares of vineyard situated in the western part of the Franciacorta zone in a natural amphitheatre. The glacial soil is full of stones, and provides the ideal environment for the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes used in the production of their Franciacorta. Bellavista, meaning ‘beautiful view’ in Italian, was founded by Vittorio Moretti in the early 1970s, with the first vintage produced in 1979. In 1981, he met a young winemaker, Mattia Vezzola and this partnership transformed Bellavista into Italy’s leading producer of quality sparkling wine.
