Wine Description

Barone Pizzini was founded in 1870 by the noble family of the same name. It is one of the oldest wineries in Franciacorta, and was the first winery in the region to promote biodiversity and natural farming methods. This choice was made in the mid-nineties because it was considered an essential condition to have “live” vines, which give healthy grapes to make high-quality wines that are a complete expression of the terroir.

Change in page text: Rosé Franciacorta, 100% Pinot Nero(80% PN 20% Chard), is sourced from six vineyards: Roccolo, Santella, Roncaglia, Pian delle Viti, Gallo and Polzina. Soils here are morainic with glacial deposits sitting at 200-350 meters above sea level. Each vineyard’s proximity at the edge of forests maintains cool temperatures throughout hotter days of the growing season.

After an August harvest, Pinot Nero is gently pressed and ferments in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. It is aged six months in stainless steel tanks and barriques, and in bottle for 30 to 40 months on natural yeasts until disgorgement and a dosage mixture of 2-3g/l of organic sugar is added.

“Bright pale pink. Dried flowers, crushed raspberries and herbs on the enticing nose. Lively, dense and juicy, with sweet flavors similar to the aromas. Boasts lovely sugar-acid-fruit balance and finishes long, clean and fresh.”

“Made with 80% Pinot Nero and 20% Chardonnay – all organically farmed – this racy elegant sparkler opens with delicate scents of wild berry, aromatic herb and bread crust. On the radiant palate, a polished perlage and vibrant acidity support pomegranate, orange zest and baking spice. It closes on an almond note.”
