Union of great selections. Rare harvests. Bellavista Vittorio Moretti, born from the desire to enhance the nature and the best crus of Franciacorta as Erbusco, Nigoline, Torbiato, Colombaro, select the rarest and most precious fruits: vineyards, plots, expositions, harvests. And the best fruit of the harvest. For each harvest, the message of those who have made creativity the passion of a lifetime. A thought turned to nature, to the feeling of the earth. The year 2011 brings the message of Paolo Conte, artist and poet of words and music, of dreams and reality: Land of wine, land of roses. A cuvée composed almost equally by Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Thus the rare microclimate position, together with the numerous refinements of Casa Bellavista, give life to a Franciacorta of exceptional personality and character. This cuvée is the best proof of the spirit of perfection that animates the Casa Bellavista. It is available on average after 7 years from the harvest.
