    Curtefranca Bianco DOC 2022
  • Curtefrànca DOC Bianco di Contadi Castaldi is a wine produced from 100% Chardonnay grapes, from vineyards located in the municipalities of Adro, Capriolo, Cazzago San Martino and Erbusco. The grapes, from 22-year-old vines, grow on morainic soils of glacial origin, giving the wine a remarkable minerality. The grapes, hand-picked and carefully selected, are softly pressed and the must decanted statically under cold conditions. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel with selected yeasts. This is followed by malolactic fermentation, carried out partially, and the delicate 7-month ageing phase in stainless steel. After bottling, the wine then rests in the cellar for several months. Fresh, savoury and mineral, it best expresses the characteristics of the Chardonnay grape variety and the Franciacorta terroir. In the glass, Curtefrànca DOC Bianco presents a bright yellow colour with faint golden reflections. The nose offers a broad and complex bouquet, with notes of exotic fruit, white flowers, tobacco, sweet almond and vanilla. In the mouth it is savoury, with traces of minerals and a lively fragrance. The pleasant acidic vein prolongs the persistence in the mouth. Perfect with fish dishes, shellfish, molluscs and fresh cheeses. It also goes well with light first courses and starters. This Contadi Castaldi white wine has won numerous international awards, including the award for "Best Chardonnay in Italy" at the Decanter World Wine Awards.

    Founded in 1991, Contadi Castaldi is one of the best-loved wineries in Franciacorta. One of those wineries that, thanks to the quality of its wines and a more than enviable production consistency, has over the years become a real point of reference for wine lovers and experts. The company belongs, together with Bellavista, to the Moretti group. It was originally an old furnace that the visionary entrepreneur reconverted into a sparkling wine house. Its large spaces and long galleries, once used for firing bricks, in fact, proved perfect for ageing sparkling wines. One of the first wineries in Franciacorta to have developed the concept of Satèn, Contadi Castaldi offers a range of wines characterised by great elegance and distinct recognisability. The company currently has around 18 hectares of its own vineyards and is able to directly follow the entire sparkling wine production cycle, from the production of the base wines to the elaboration of the wines that must rest for several months on the lees in the cellar. If Franciacorta has now become almost synonymous with Italian quality sparkling wine, part of the credit must go to the commitment of fine wineries such as Contadi Castaldi.
