Located in Lombardy in northern Italy, Franciacorta turns out world class Metodo Classicos that get better every year thanks to the producers’ decades of experience and commitment to quality. Besides adopting drier styles across the board, gentler pressing of the grapes and longer aging on the lees, the real revolution is taking place in the vineyards, with a collective dedication to sustainable practices and organic viticulture.
