Tasting Notes: Bright yellow in color with green reflections. The nose is characterized by marked minerality and notes of sweet ripe fruit, meringue, pastry and candied peel. The palate is fruit-driven with a creamy mouthfeel and a texture that combines elegance and harmony.
Description: The grapes used for Alma Gran Cuvee are sourced from 10 different plots within the 10 districts of Franciacorta, all with south or south-east orientation, an altitude of 200-350 meters, and full exposure to the breezes coming from Lake Iseo and the foothills of the Alps. The care of the vineyard is entrusted to true grape growing experts, and the average age of the vines, which has now exceeded 20 years, is just one of the many parameters that attest to the utmost respect reserved for the work of winegrowers.
Estate: This estate makes Italy's finest sparkling wines from the Franciacorta zone in a natural amphitheatre. The glacial soil is full of stones and provides the ideal environment for the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes used in the production of their Franciacorta. Bellavista, meaning 'beautiful view' in Italian, was founded by Vittorio Moretti in the early 1970s, with the first vintage produced in 1979. In 1981, he met a young winemaker, Mattia Vezzola and this partnership transformed Bellavista into Italy's leading producer of quality sparkling wine.
