The wine is the crowing achievement of a long process of pioneering renewal in Barone Pizzini’s vineyards and winery, a project that led the estate to become the first organic grower and winemaker in Franciacorta.
It represents Barone Pizzini’s soul – anima in Italian – and it embodies the winery’s guiding principle of respect for the land, the enivoronment and the wine lover.
Twenty-five vineyards that can be divided into three big “families”,each with its own unique soil type and geological origins. All three deliver a different nuance in the genetic makeup ot the wine.
– Complexity by the vineyards lying at the highest elevations as well as those that sit atop the Alpine foothils.
– Balance from aging of the blending wines, which are made from grapes grown in the heart of Franciacorta.
– Elegance from the soils of low-lyng vineyards.
The cardinal principle inscribed in the heart of the Franciacorta winemaker is that of deconstructing and reconstructing in order to preserve the soul to the vineyard.
Every vineyard produces unique fruit, the expression of its own microcosm. In the cellar, every parcel receives careful attention and respect for its unique personality. Pressing, lees aging and clarification are never identical. Instead, they are varied in accordance with the nature of the grapes and the character of their aromas and flavors. Every parcel is vinified separately and assesed one by one with each harvest.
After the personality of each parcel has been established, the wines are carefully blended to give life to the cuvée – a composition of balanced colours, a flow of thought-provoking notes, the product of a priceless artisanal tradition.
