Franciacorta Brut DOCG - Contadi Castaldi

A great classic, among the classic methods of Franciacorta. Forgive the innocent play on words but, never as in this case, we are faced with a bottle that represents in the imagination of every wine lover the true essence of the Franciacorta method. Chardonnay in clear predominance over Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc, this Brut by Contadi Castaldi is the perfect companion for refined aperitifs and dinners with friends. In the cellar there is a lot of attention. From the maniacal selection of the best bunches of grapes to the rigorous control of the cold chain at every stage of processing to preserve the best scents of the grapes. The malolactic fermentation, which is partially carried out, also guarantees the complexity of the final result. The result is a bubble characterized by a beautiful straw yellow colour with greenish reflections. The nose is fresh, with floral, citrus and fruity notes. The taste is crisp, with a nice acidity and a satisfying flavor.

Founded in 1991, Contadi Castaldi is one of the most popular wineries in Franciacorta. One of those wineries that, thanks to the quality of its wines and a more than enviable consistency of production, have become over the years 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 converted into a sparkling wine house. Its wide spaces and long tunnels, once used for firing bricks, in fact, proved to be perfect for the refinement of sparkling wines. One of the first wineries in Franciacorta to have developed the concept of Satèn, Contadi Castaldi offers a range of wines characterized by great elegance and a strong recognizability. The company currently has about 18 hectares of its own vineyards and is able to directly follow the entire production cycle of sparkling wines, from the production of base wines to the elaboration of wines that must rest for several months on the lees in the cellar. If Franciacorta has now become almost synonymous with quality Italian sparkling wine, part of the credit must go to the commitment of fine wineries such as Contadi Castaldi.

    Celebrating 30 years of production, Contadi Castaldi's NV Franciacorta Brut is a transparent and light sparkler with a very pale golden hue accented by straw yellow highlights. This is a crisp and delineated blend of 80% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Nero and 10% Pinot Bianco with sharp acidity that refreshes the palate with profound intensity. This lean-bodied Metodo Classico sparkling wine would pair beautifully with raw Mediterranean fish or sushi. With 500,000 bottles made, it also offers excellent value.

  • James Sucking 92

    Very toasty nose and an attractive, creamy palate with a juicy finish that is less tart than many sparkling wines from Franciacorta. Elegant, almost silky finish. Drink now. Disgorged in 2018.
