Franciacorta: Franciacorta is a prestigious sparkling wine region in Lombardy, Northern Italy. It is known for producing high-quality sparkling wines using the traditional method (Méthode Champenoise), similar to Champagne. Franciacorta wines are made primarily from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Blanc grapes. Bellavista Winery: Bellavista is one of the leading wineries in the Franciacorta region. It was founded by Vittorio Moretti, an entrepreneur and wine enthusiast, in the early 1970s. The winery is known for its commitment to quality and its dedication to producing top-tier sparkling wines. "Vittorio Moretti" Extra Brut Vintage: The wine named "Vittorio Moretti" is likely a special cuvée or vintage produced to honor the winery's founder. Extra Brut indicates that the wine is very dry, with minimal residual sugar, highlighting the purity of the fruit and the expression of the terroir. Vintage 2013: The choice of the 2013 vintage may indicate favorable weather conditions during the growing season, contributing to the quality of the grapes. Wines from exceptional vintages often have good aging potential. Chardonnay Dominance: Chardonnay is a key grape variety in Franciacorta wines, contributing freshness, acidity, and citrusy notes. It is commonly used in various styles, including Extra Brut, to highlight the grape's character. Traditional Method: Bellavista, like many Franciacorta producers, employs the traditional method for sparkling wine production. This involves secondary fermentation in the bottle, resulting in fine and persistent bubbles. Aging on Lees: Franciacorta wines typically undergo an extended period of aging on the lees (spent yeast cells) after the secondary fermentation. This contributes to the wine's complexity, creaminess, and biscuity notes. Vittorio Moretti: Vittorio Moretti, the founder of Bellavista, is known not only for his contributions to the winery but also for his influence on the development of the Franciacorta region as a whole. His passion for wine and dedication to quality have left a lasting impact. Estate Vineyards: Bellavista likely sources grapes from its estate vineyards, which are carefully managed to ensure optimal grape quality. Estate-grown grapes contribute to the overall character and uniqueness of the wine. Food Pairing: Extra Brut sparkling wines are versatile with food. They pair well with a range of dishes, including seafood, oysters, light appetizers, and even certain cheeses.
