Franciacorta

Grapes cultivation has ancient origins in Franciacorta, as testified by classical authors such as Pliny, Columella and Virgil and the first appearance of the name “Franzacurta” can be traced to the 1277 when Franzacurta or Franzia Curta was an important center for the production of wine for nearby towns and villages. Franciacorta lies in the heart of Lombardy and is made by gently sloped hills enclosed by the Oglio river and the Alps and the morainic origin of the area provide the soil with an extraordinarily rich mineral content that characterise every bottle of Franciacorta and it approximately 130 square miles.
