Bellavista is the name of the hill where the winery is located. From here, the viewer’s gaze takes in lake Iseo, the Po valley and the nearby Aips. The penultimate glaciation created an amphitheater ringed by morainic hills, stretching from the Alpine foothills of Lombardy to the shores of lake Iseo and Mount Orfano: a stronghold that shields the area against the fog that creeps up from the Po valley. An oasis of sunlight, water and energy that makes the expression of local viticulture unique, with a mediterranean-subalpine climate, mild and well-ventilated.
This wine was named after the vineyard where the grapes are harvested: 4.14 hectares at approximately 300 meters above sea level, among the most sun-kissed in the Franciacorta area. The substrate consists of carbonaterich glacial deposits, characterized by sandy-silty textures, compacted with gravel under the glacier’s pressure. A varietal chardonnay, the wine ferments and matures for one year in small 228-liter oak barrels, before spending 6 more months in the bottle.
The golden yellow color anticipates an ample, exquisite and refined bouquet, in which delicate hints of vanilla envelop quince and ripe citrus fruit sensations. On the palate, it is creamy and embracing, smooth, silky, well-structured and dynamic, marked by deep aromatic reminiscences.
