Franciacorta Four

6 bottle case.

“Franciacorta” both defines the area and the method of production, and has for centuries - since the Serenissima Republic of the 16th century - defined the wine. A sparkling wine, made in the traditional method (like champagne), using the classic grapes of champagne - chardonnay and pinot noir

This mixed case of four wines - two bottles each of Brut and Brut Rosé, and one bottle each of Blanc de Noir and Pas Dosé - showcase the different styles of organic Franciacorta made by this amazing independent producer, Elisabetta Abrami. These wines are also available to purchase by-the-case through this Web site.
