Description Build A Case!
 
As early as the mid-1800s, the winery, located in the fratta quarter of monticelli brusati, enjoyed a fine reputation. Knight of the holy cross luigi rossetti had made it the largest and finest in the province; with four intersecting tunnels arranged in the form of a greek cross, it could hold 6,000 hectolitres of wine, an enormous amount for the time, winning it its local nickname, el cantinù, the big cellar. On the death of luigi rossetti, the property passed from hand to hand, experiencing even abandonment. This ended in 1979 with the birth of antica fratta, a project that would restore its ancient splendour. Today, antica fratta “re-launches,” with renewed and greater ambitions, and with the firm intention of becoming the “essence” of franciacorta.

TASTING NOTES: An elegantly fresh, vivacious and full Franciacorta, characterized by pleasing fruity and floral aromas. Obtained from Chardonnay grapes after more than 24 months on yeasts. Excellent as an aperitif but it can also be served throughout a meal; it is particularly suitable for delicate dishes of fish and white meat.
