To produce the Franciacorta DOCG Brut “Teatro alla Scala” Bellavista, individual parcels were specially selected for this blend of 75% Chardonnay and 25% Pinot Noir. Made in the traditional method, 30% of the wine that makes up this Vintage Brut was fermented and matured for at least seven months in small oak barrels with the remainder staying in stainless-steel tanks. Once blended and bottled, the wine matured on lees for an additional four years before disgorgement.
Bellavista has 200 hectares of vineyard across 10 communes within the Franciacorta DOCG. The sites have some of the best exposure in the region and produce fruit with character and great aromatic potential. For the Vintage Brut, site selection is rigorous. Fruit only comes from vineyards that are high up on the hillsides, with a south and south-east exposure. Average vine age is over 25 years old.
