Ferghettina Franciacorta Extra Brut 2006 Italian Sparkling White Wine 750 mL

$34.99

Franciacorta comes from the northern Italian Lombardia wine region. Franciacorta has quietly been producing Italy’s best Champagne method sparkling wine for decades.  This region has the ideal climate and Champagne varietals to produce excellent sparkling wines from standard non vintage brut to exquiste older vintages.

A beautiful golden color. Fine and persistent perlage. The wine shows intense aromas of almond, vanilla and fruit with an optimal balance between sensitivity and persistence.
About the producer
Our winery owes everything to Roberto Gatti’s initiative, intuition and foresight. Roberto was born in Cazzago San Martino in 1953, to a family of farmers and vine-growers, but soon moved to Erbusco, in the heart of Franciacorta.
In his youth he worked for a local farm with his father, and later on his own as the manager of the wine cellar and vineyards, for another well-known winery within the area.
