It represents the soul of Barone Pizzini because it embodies the living nature of its vineyards. It’s the crowning achievement of a long process of pionering renewal that led Barone Pizzini to become the first organic grower and winemaker in Franciacorta.
Rigorous, earnest and with dense flavor, rich structure and healthy acidity. Part of the grapes comes from a higher elevation vineyard,Pian delle Viti, which was called Valle Sospesa or “Suspended Valley” in the Middle Ages. Its limestone-rich soil gives the wine a delicious mineral note. Its sparkle is Franciacorta in its purest expression.
Made from grapes grown in vineyards that lie on the edge of the woods, this sensual and idyllic expression of Pinot Noir is transformed into notes of underbrush, currant, and blueberry together with hints of rose petal in the glass. The structure and balance of this wine are interwoven in a lingering tension between its rich flavor and acidity.
The grapes for this wine come from a single vineyard where the more than twenty-year-old vines enjoy the benefits of a climate mitigated by the surrounding woods. Healthy temperature variation between day and night gives the site rich biodiversity. This reserve wine is made only in small quantities and only in top vintages. Its production is held to the highest quality standards.
