This estate 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.
Bellavista has chosen 190 hectares of vines in 10 communes within the Franciacorta DOCG. The vineyards have some of the best exposure, character and expressive potential in the area. This has given rise to 107 small crus that express the intrinsic personality of the land and the subtle nuances of its character and personality.
This rosé is a delicate pink with persistent bubbles. The nose opens with intense white peach notes that mellow into wild strawberries, golden apple, rosehip and a hint of toast. On the palate, the wine is dry with well balanced, fresh acidity. An elegant background of blackcurrant and sweet almond flavours lingers on the finish.
Franciacorta Rosé Brut Vintage DOCG
The Franciacorta Rosé Brut 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. 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.
