Wine Comments
A deep straw yellow in colour, with very bright greenish highlights. The nose is broad and appealing, with hints of ripe fruit, especially apricot and pineapple. It also has an attractive and elegant vanilla note and a marked mineral vein. Displaying excellent balance and freshness on the palate, it has a long, tangy finish.

The Domaine
This estate makes Italy’s finest sparkling wines from its 190 hectares of vineyard situated in the western part of the Franciacorta zone in a natural amphitheatre...
The glacial soil is full of stones, and provides the ideal environment for the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes used in the production of their Franciacorta.
Bellavista meaning ‘beautiful view’ in Italian was founded by Vittorio Moretti in the early 1970s, with the first vintage produced in 1979. In 1981, he met a young winemaker, Mattia Vezzola and this partnership transformed Bellavista into Italy’s leading producer of quality sparkling wine.

Food Pairing
Served with shrimp bisque, shrimp and sweet potato tempura, and crepes stuffed with spinach, onion, proscuitto, then covered with nutmeg-spiced bechamel and parmigiano reggiano.
