ABOUT THE WINE


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.
Gracefulness and assertiveness, gentleness and power, combine in this delicious and rare cuvée, made from approximately 60% chardonnay and 40% pinot nero. As always, the choice of the base wines is decisive, and that explains why the final assembly is made choosing from 30 vintage selections, some of which have matured in small white oak casks. Cellaring lasts 4 years or more after the harvest.


TASTING NOTE:


The juvenile light pink hues can evolve into precious dusty colors with bottle-ageing, and are surrounded by a shining white foam and a thick, pesistent pérlage. White peach aromas start the aromatic dance, followed and amplified by hints of wild strawberries, wildflowers and toasted bread. The mouthfeel is fleshy, dry, fresh but not sharp, punctuated by harmonious and seductive vibrations reminiscent of black currant and sweet almonds.
