The grapes were gently pressed and the musts underwent cold static clarification. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts, controlled at 16°C. Once the first fermentation was complete, the wine was racked to remove the coarse lees. The wine did not go through malolactic conversion, retaining a crisp style. The base wines was refined on the fine lees for around six months with variable frequency bâtonnage, before the final blend which included 10% reserve wines aged in French oak barriques and tonneaux. The secondary fermentation to obtain the sparkling wine, took place in
bottle; it was refined on the lees for 24 months, followed by a further two after disgorgement.

The grapes come from the best vineyards of the Franciacorta DOCG, in Lombardy, where the topography follows an amphitheatre shape formed by ancient glacial activity. The Morainic soils were formed during the last Ice Age; gravely, stony soils are well drained and rich in minerals. The vineyards are greatly influenced by the cold winds coming from the Alps, however the continental climate is mitigated by the effects of Lake d’Iseo. The vines are Guyot and spurred cordon trained. For over 20 years Guido Berlucchi has been at the forefront of innovation and sustainability projects, such as vigour mapping – the use of satellite images and multispectral cameras that capture plants’ photosynthetic activity and consequently their state of health in real time, which allows for bespoke cultivation; soil zoning and increasing biodiversity in viticulture. In 2016, the three-year conversion to organic viticulture was completed, they had been using low-impact products since 2000, favouring those that safeguard useful
insects and keep water volumes to a minimum. The grapes are hand-harvested.
