Introduction to Franciacorta

Speaking of Italian sparkling wine, you may have heard of the ubiquitous Prosecco. But real wine connoisseurs know, if there is an Italian sparkling wine that can compete with Champagne, is Franciacorta. Franciacorta is not just another sparkling wine. It's an experience, a journey into the heart of Italy's finest vineyards, and a testament to the love and passion of the winemakers who create it. At VinoVoss, we invite you to explore the magic of Franciacorta, the hidden gem of Italian sparkling wines.

The Uniqueness of Franciacorta

Franciacorta stands out in three key ways: its location, production method, and grape varieties. Nestled in Lombardy, at the foothill of Italian Alpes, the region benefits from a unique microclimate that gives Franciacorta its signature taste. The 'Metodo Classico' production process, similar to that used in Champagne, with the second fermentation in bottle, offers complexity and depth. The main grape varieties used to produce Franciacorta are also very similar to Champagne, the blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Bianco grapes results in a refined and elegant flavor profile.
