    Winemaker's Notes:

    Of all the Bellavista wines, Brut Cuvée best represents the characteristic qualities of Franciacorta. Its balance derives from the blending of at least thirty selections. The addition of some older wines, with their distinctive perfumes and flavours, confers consistency to the taste, plus roundness and finesse. The grapes used are 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Bianco and Pinot Nero. The mousse is white, lively and persistent, the bubbles small and long-lasting. The colour is light yellow with hints of green. The perfume is full, inviting, rich in ripe fruits, chlorophyll and vanilla; these perfumes are fully reflected in the taste, and are echoed in the aftertaste.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The NV Brut Cuvee is simply beautiful. White peaches, jasmine, minerals, ash and grapefruit are some of the aromas and flavors that come together in this taut, focused Franciacorta. This is a superb example of Italy’s best reasonably priced methode Champenoise wine. I loved it. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016.

    The Wine Advocate

    Bellavista's Cuvée Brut is a wine that delivers consistent and delicious results year after year. It's a sure bet because of its delicately toasted notes that are enhanced by plenty of ripe fruit and citrus. It also shows extreme finesse and elegance, with a bright and cheerful personality.
