1701 Franciacorta Brut Nature

1701 Franciacorta Brut is a blend of Chardonnay 85% and Pinot Nero 15%. Its full palate is balanced by marked acidity. Mineral hints softened by fresh fruits and a lingering flavour of red apple.

On the top of Santa Giulia hill, beside the cluniac church of the same name, the glorious eighteenth century villa Palazzo Cazzago is home to the 1701 winery. The villa is part of ancient land belonging to the noble families of Bettoni and Cazzago. The land includes approximately 15 hectares of hillside in Cazzago San Martino, Franciacorta.

The name 1701 was chosen to recall the first vinification of their “brolo”, a 4-hectare vineyard framed by XI century walls.
1701 Franciacorta is a 10 ha organic certified winery now in conversion to Demeter. As members of Renaissance des Appellations they follow biodynamic farming methods – an approach which excludes any chemical intervention. It is ultimately a philosophy of life, about working closely with the vine, understanding and respecting its life cycle until the point when bottled it can fully express its vitality and character and above all the authenticity of its terroir. From Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vineyards, they produce Franciacorta Brut, Satèn and Rosé and a Vintage Dosaggio Zero in exceptional years. The range also includes Sullerba, a semi sparkling Chardonnay ‘sur lie’.

Grapes are hand harvested and whole bunches are put into stainless vats except the Sullerba which is fermented 50% in amphora. Secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle – the Sullerba is on the lees for 18 months, the Saten and the Brut spend 30 months before bottling. The Sullerba is unfiltered, whereas the other two undergo a very light filtration.

Spagnol Prosecco DOCG Frizzante Lo Spago 2020

The colour is bright straw yellow and it has the light and soft perlage typical of Frizzante wines. The nose senses a bouquet of apple and floral notes of acacia and wisteria. The taste is fresh and very typical, with good acidity balanced by tatantalizing sapidity or an almost salty minerality. This wine is closely linked to the traditions of this territory and characterised by the typical “twine knot”. The cork is fixed to the bottle neck with twine, a procedure which is still done today by hand, just as it has been done for generations by the farming families of this area.

Spagnol Colfondo Prosecco Frizzante Il Fondo 2018

A traditional Colfondo Prosecco, made with re-fermentation in the bottle according to the Classic Italian Method, without disgorging or dosing the finished wine. This is a light wine but with good body; bone-dry with residual sugars between 1-4 g/l. The perlage is very fine, given the aging on its own yeasts. There are distinctive notes of bread crusts and ripe yellow fruit. The lees deposit on the bottom is usually compact but, if shaken, it can be quite hazy and cloudy.
