Type: Sparkling Wine
Region & Country: Franciacorta, Italy
Description: The sparkling wines of Franciacorta are a more recent addition to the world of Sparkling wines. A style founded only in 60s, Franciacorta owes its quality and success to one man; Franco Ziliani. Franco Ziliani, through a lucky encounter with Guido Berlucchi, would found the Berlucchi estate together in 1955, the first of its kind.
Camilucci is a tiny estate compared to the major companies in the region that now dominate production. Stefano Camilucci had left his family estate to start his own project with much smaller vineyard holdings at about 20 hectares. This Brut is fresh and lively, with very clean green apple and pear fruit flavours and slight yeastiness. Try this in place of Champagne!
