BRUT BLANC DE BLANCS
Our Blanc de blancs is , in quantitative terms, two thirds of our Franciacorta production. For this reason, although we may think that the attention of the producer is mainly dedicated to the realization of the best vintage reserve, most of our efforts are actually aimed at guarantee this cuvee without vintage, in addition to an excellent and constant quality level, the personality and the style Cavalleri.
After few years the healthy biodynamic breeze is blowing on our vineyards, we have decided to introduce in the base wines of our Blanc de blancs also a 15% of fermentation with indigenous yeasts . Small steps, coherent and gradual, of our journey towards the perfect Franciacorta , in which the finesse and elegance of the chardonnay of Erbusco, from the hills, grow surprisingly over time.
