Full tasting note and wine making –
Franciacorta Ferghettina Brut has an exuberant bright style that is lively and very approachable with a citrus fruits – golden apple character. The alcoholic fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tank at controlled temperature and the wine spends twenty four months ageing on the lees before final racking and bottling ensuring flavour development.
The producer –
Franciacorta Ferghettina is one of the emerging estates in Italy’s booming sparkling wine sector. Roberto Gatti spent twenty years as cellarmaster and viticulturalist at Bellavista, one of the early pioneers of the Franciacorta region, before creating Ferghettina in 1990. The Gatti Family manages 120 hectares of vineyards in the DOC and a new winery and cellars, started in 2002, were completed in 2005 and sit in a magnificent location overlooking the beautiful Lake Iseo. Roberto is assisted by his daughter Laura, also an oenologist, shortly to be joined by his son Matteo. The Gatti’s control production of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, using only half of the grapes available for their production of 300,000 bottles. Meticulous attention to detail, skillful blending and long bottle maturation give wines of great finesse and individuality. The ‘Italy’s answer to Champagne’ tag is unavoidable but these wines are much more than that.
