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.

“A fragrant sparkler, with generous floral and spice notes winding through ripe cherry and strawberry fruit flavors. Balanced and zesty on the palate, with a pleasing bitter hint of pink grapefruit peel on the finish.” — Wine Spectator, Jan 2024
“The 2019 Rose Franciacorta Edizione is remarkably pretty, with red florals and white cherries complemented by sweet spice. It soothes with its silky bubbles and juicy acidity as citrus-tinged pit fruits swirl throughout. This finishes perfumed and with admirable length while the palate thirsts for another taste.” — Vinous, Dec 2023
