ranciacorta Brut Millesimo 2009 has been awarded the "5 Grappoli" rating by the Guida Bibenda 2016. Aroma is crisp and fresh with notes of almond and bread. It is fresh, well balanced and persistent, showing notes of dried fruit and citrus. In 1975 Enrico Gatti purchased a single hectare in Erbusco, the heart of the Franciacorta region, and made a red wine which he sold in demijohns to local restaurants. At the time Franciacorta was really just getting started as a sparkling wine region and, seeing the potential, Enrico enlisted the support of his children, Lorenzo and Paola, and Paola’s husband Enzo Balzarini, and in 1984 they acquired a further sixteen hectares with the aim of producing a great bollicine. Now very much a family operation with a third generation involved, the total production is 100.000 bottles – still tiny by local standards. The vineyards are all planted on the regions classic morainic terrain, and farmed organically and by hand.

Pale straw. Very pure and precise aromas of white stone fruit complicated by hints of ripe apricot and minerals and perked up by hints of white flowers. Clean fresh and juicy, with almost saline flavors of stone fruit and yellow apple. Long fresh and creamy on the extremely refined finish. Super Prosecco from Follador, whom I consider one of the true masters of the Glera grape variety and wine.
