Pinot noir provides the blush color and complexity to this epic sparkler. Franciacorta’s layered geological formations boast complex microclimates. Wines are defined by both a sub-Alpine and Mediterranean-type climate due to the proximity of Lake Iseo. In the forest protected vineyards of Pinot Nero, aspects of coolness during the day contributes to highly developed floral and fruit aromas. Ancient moraine is fertile and well-drained, contributing to more delicate spice and fruit flavors.
