"Best" Brut - Famiglia Cotarella - Falesco

Produced using the Charmat method and presented for the first time in summer 2015, it is the first sparkling version of the Est! Est!!! Est!!! the typical white wine of Montefiascone. Hence its original and amusing name: Best Brut. Based on Trebbiano, Rossetto and Malvasia, all grapes come from the Montefiascone area, from vineyards overlooking Lake Bolsena. The typical climate of the area makes it possible to harvest grapes particularly suitable for the production of base wines for Charmat sparkling wines. Low, in fact, is the alcohol content while the acidity is naturally high. After a soft pressing, the must obtained is fermented at a controlled temperature. Then, once fermentation is complete, the base wine is kept in steel containers before being subjected to the final autoclave frothing. The result is a very pleasant sparkling wine characterised by a light yellow colour with greenish reflections. The mousse is delicate and pleasant and reveals a delicate, direct bouquet with notes of fresh fruit and apple. In the mouth, however, it surprises with its lovely freshness and natural flavour.

The Cotarella name, in the Italian and international wine world, is one of those of weight. Riccardo Cotarella, in fact, is the best known contemporary oenologist, the one who signs, or has signed, some of the finest wines of recent years. Iconic and successful products, often awarded by wine guides all over the world. Famiglia Cotarella is the family business, founded in 1979, in Montefiascone, in the province of Viterbo, from the work of two brothers, Renzo and Riccardo. A very special project, conceived with a very precise objective, that of recovering the ancient vines of the area. Almost 50 years later, Famiglia Cotarella has become an absolute reference point for quality oenology in central Italy. In recent years, the two Cotarella brothers have passed the hand over to their daughters, Dominga, Marta and Enrica, who take care of every aspect. Today the company has expanded considerably and cultivates land in Umbria and Tuscany, as well as in Lazio.
