FRANCIACORTA ALMA GRAN CUVEE BRUT 75CL £21.72

Please note this item is exempt from promotion & discount codes.

Alma is an “affectionate” term for the land that produces wonders. It’s a cuvée that symbolises our tradition, inspired by the pure essence of harmony. A tender homage to the place where we have laid our roots, which we love and defend. We hope that in terms of quality and type this Cuvée might represent the most mysterious soul of the Land of Franciacorta, as well as the wine-making style of our winery. To achieve this, we have put the utmost care and attention in to every step of the production process, favouring a craftsman’s method which is now almost forgotten and choosing as our only guide nature itself and its amazing biodiversity. Alma Cuvée was born out of the skilful blending of approximately 60 of the 120 estate harvest selections. Approximately 100 selections come from the same harvest and are identified with extreme care throughout the 107 plots ranged over 10 different Franciacorta municipalities (“horizontal blending”). To this broad spectrum of scent and taste variants we add the particular perfumes and flavours of “reserve wines” from different harvests (“vertical blending”). The “reserve wines” represent our greatest asset and treasure and it is with the greatest consideration that we draw on these to define, and ensure the extensive life of, the sensual connotations that distinguish the Bellavista style. Their exceptional contribution creates the “constant taste” of Casa Bellavista’s wines and particularly lends the Alma Cuvée the texture and soothing elegance that has always been its distinctive trait along with our tradition. A subtle composition of exceptional raw materials, the characteristics of which are enhanced by what is now the almost forgotten art of wine-making. At least 15% of the wines it is made up of ferment and mature in small white oak casks: a production detail that endows our Cuvée with astounding complexity. The grapes used are: 80% Chardonnay, 19% Pinot nero, 1% Pinot bianco TASTING NOTES The mousse is white, lively and decidedly persistent. The perlage is fine and continuous, with abundant head. The colour is bright and yellow with marked greenish tinges. The bouquet is broad and enticing, embracing nuances of sweet ripe fruit (Decana pears) along with subtle hints of chlorophyll and vanilla. The flavour matches the nose, and the aftertaste is tangy and satisfying. Its depth and remarkable harmony blend into its outstanding elegance. Its vibrant character is sustained without the least compromise by a freshness that preserves its persistence. TIME AND SILENCE Bellavista Alma Cuvée brut matures in our cellars for at least 4 years from the time of the grape harvest.
