Bellavista Franciacorta DOCG Grande Cuvée Alma NV
What’s better than a bottle of Bellavista? Two bottles!
This is a refreshing sparkler that absolutely hits the spot! Pale yellow colour with green tints. Ripe stone fruits, fresh white flowers and vanilla pastry aromas waft from the glass. Fresh, vibrant and mineral in the mouth with a lively and persistent fizz. Long, harmonious finish.
Elegantly crafted in the traditional method (aka Champagne method) from more than 100 parcels of grapes, all picked and vinified separately then blended together in the perfect cuvée. This cuvée embodies the quintessence of Franciacorta and the ideal harmony behind every Bellavista Franciacorta Method wine. The blend for ‘Alma’ consists of 88% Chardonnay, 11% Pinot Nero and 1% Pinot Blanc. 15% of the wines used in the blend are fermented and then matured for 7 months in small oak barrels. These wines are then blended with reserve wines, which come earlier vintages. Once blended, the wine is bottled and left to age on lees for 2 and a half years before release. The contribution of the reserve wines ensures Bellavista’s consistent, signature style in every bottle.
