THE WINE

Franciacorta Millesimato Nature by Berlucchi is a wine made from chardonnay and pinot noir grapes harvested in the third decade of August from the vineyards located in the municipalities of Corte Franca and Provaglio d'Iseo: Arzelle, Rovere and San Carlo for chardonnay and Ragnoli for pinot noir. The cuvée was prepared in the spring following the harvest, using only the wines of the vintage. After the second fermentation in the bottle there is a refinement on the lees for at least 5 years, followed by another 6 months after disgorgement. The result is a wine with intense flavors and aromas. A wine of great elegance and complexity, a certainty.

BERLUCCHI '61 NATURE

The '61 Nature line was created in 2016 and today boasts three vintage Franciacortas - '61 Nature, '61 Nature Rosé and '61 Nature Blanc de Blancs - united by long aging and the absence of dosage: a stylistic choice that emphasizes the maximum the peculiarities of our territory.

Produced from a selection of grapes from the best vineyards owned by Guido Berlucchi, the Franciacortas of the '61 Nature line patiently age in the bottle for at least 5 years.

This long aging in contact with yeasts allows their taste to be enriched with precious nuances, finally emphasized by the absence of dosage syrup, in the rigorous Nature style.

The Berlucchi '61 Franciacorta Nature are available in its Nature, Rosé and Blanc de Blancs versions.

THE COMPANY

In 1955, young and irrepressible oenologist Franco Ziliani directed that query to Guido Berlucchi, a country gentleman who was looking for a consultant who could improve his Pinot del Castello, and what he found instead was a partner for an adventure in fine taste that would profoundly transform the destiny of Franciacorta.

Ziliani was fascinated by the elegant figure of Berlucchi, by his handsome mansion, Palazzo Lana Berlucchi, and by its ancient underground cellars. His youthful dream was to produce a classic-method wine in his native area, Franciacorta, and he boldly proposed to Berlucchi the idea of making a sparkling wine in a winegrowing area long dedicated to still table wines.

Berlucchi accepted, and the two pioneers joined forces with Berlucchi’s friend Giorgio Lanciani. The challenge was taken up, and, after some less-than-satisfactory vintages, 1961 finally saw the corking of three thousand bottles of Pinot di Franciacorta. When the corks were drawn the following year, the wine met all their expectations. Franciacorta was born!

In 1962, Ziliani created Italy’s first classic-method rosé, Max Rosé, inspired by Massimiliano Imbert, a Milan-based antiquarian friend of Berlucchi’s who prized the French sparkling rosés and desired an Italian rosé that would satisfy his refined taste. Max Rosé’s name, appearance, and taste completely won him over.
