The non-vintage Brut, is a blend of 80% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Noir, and 10% Pinot Bianco. It exhibits a refined bouquet of yeasty bread, dried apricots, pear, and citrus. This wine, which spent three years on its lees, is rich, fresh, medium-bodied, and long in the mouth, with tiny pinpoint bubbles and a lot of frothiness. Drink it over the next 2-4 years.
Easily comparable, if not better than a good non-vintage Champagne, Bellavista is one of Franciacorta’s most famous producers beside Ca’ del Bosco. What started as a hobby over three decades ago for founder Vittorio Moretti, and winemaker, Mattia Vezzola, Bellavista now produces flavorful and refined sparkling wines. Franciacorta is Italy’s response to French Champagne. The wines are fermented in the same way, with second fermentation in the bottle – this aging on the lees adds complexity and richness, as well as a natural sparkle. With patience for the art, Bellavista’s concentration and devotion to the vinification process shine through in their brilliant Franciacorta wines.
