Fernando Bussolera Special Cuvée Extra Brut Pinot Nero - Le Fracce

This wine is not only good but also has an interesting story to tell. In fact, it is made from pure Pinot Noir, cultivated in an experimental vineyard where, thanks to the contribution of the Bussolera-Branca Foundation, efforts are being made to reduce the impact on the environment to a minimum. Treatments in the vineyard, therefore, are reduced to a minimum, and in any case without the use of synthetic products. On the contrary, the "actinomycetes", natural fungi which protect the young roots from pathologies, favouring a healthy and ecological growth, are used. The result? A fascinating classic method with 24 months of refinement in the bottle, characterized by a beautiful pale straw colour, enhanced by the persistent perlage. On the nose, floral notes of jasmine and hawthorn, combined with the fruity freshness of rennet apple and pear. In the mouth, fine, velvety bubbles lengthen the taste on tones of pear and fresh hazelnut, with a pleasantly citrusy finish.

The company Le Fracce was founded in Mairano di Casteggio in 1905. At that time the vineyards were only on a gentle hill called "Cirgà" in the dialect of Pavia. The founder's goal, shared by modern generations, was (and is) to create quality wines, promoting environmentally friendly viticulture, capable of preserving the health of the land, to be left as a heritage for future generations. In addition to developing and preserving biodiversity, favouring natural resources, but above all enhancing the vines of the territory, encouraging experimentation to improve quality production and thus give rise to new creations. I mean, it's certainly not a goal within just anyone's reach. And yet, in over a century of history, the Fracce have contributed a great deal to the enhancement of their habitat, giving life to wines of quality and character, in the heart of the Oltrepò Pavese.
