Cuvée Prestige Edition

Cuvée Prestige Edition

The essence of thirty years’ experience. Love of one’s land. The utmost expression of the soils of Franciacorta. Experience and intuition that, one harvest after another, form an intimate bond with the raw material – the grapes – and the long process that transforms them into wine.

Data Sheet
Cuvée Prestige Edition

Born in 1976 with the name of Franciacorta Pinot, this wine marks our initial foray into the world of Franciacortas. In 1991, with the name Franciacorta Brut N.V., it takes on an increasingly recognizable style, more expressive of its terroir. In 2005, after more than 30 years of experimentation and dedication, it matures into Cuvée Prestige and acquires its own well-defined identity. Following a constant reduction in the liqueur added at disgorging, in order to exalt the characteristics of the grapes, with the 2017 harvest it adds Edizione to its name, allowing the gustatory memory to precisely identify the various nuances of each interpretation.
