Berlucchi ‘61 Franciacorta Brut Nature DOCG

Berlucchi, a pioneer producer of Classic Method wines and a benchmark for organic viticulture in Franciacorta, launched, as early as 2000, a sustainability project that has won many followers in the Franciacorta growing area. Today, every single Berlucchi estate vineyard, and almost all the vineyards of its independent grape growers, are certified organic.
A cuvée of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Nero from the finest estate vineyards in the Arzelle, Rovere, San Carlo, and Ragnoli estate vineyards. It is an uncompromising yet elegant Millesimato made in the Nature style, without a syrup dosage. With an image suggesting circles, the symbol of perfection, this cuvée will appeal to those who savour refinement in all its forms.
First vintage produced in 2009.
