Ferghettina Franciacorta Rosé Brut
Established in 1990 by Roberto Gatti – after buying a tiny winery and three hectares of vines from a family friend – Ferghettina has grown into one of the region’s most prized Franciacorta producers. In 2005 a new winery was opened overlooking the beautiful Lake Iseo and from here Roberto and his daughter Laura produce 300,000 bottles of wine annually from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. Meticulous attention to detail, skilful blending and long bottle maturation give Ferghettina’s wines great finesse and individuality.
The Gatti family manage 120 hectares of vineyards in six localities within the DOC. Sunny rolling hills, at the foot of the Alps, ensure well ripened grapes.
The alcoholic fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature between 16 and 18 °C with selected yeasts. Tirage takes place in spring time of the following year. The wine is aged on lees for 36 months.
What does it go with:
Delightful with all shellfish, mozarella, good Italian pizza or vine-ripened tomatoes, or even dim sum.
