Producer Information

Italian sparkling wine is not all about Prosecco, as leading Franciacorta producer Ferghettina has proved time and time again.

Ferghettina is a family winery - established in 1991 by Roberto Gatti, and run with his wife Andreina, and their children Laura and Matteo. Starting with just 3-4ha of vineyard and a small production of Franciacorta Brut, Ferghettina has now grown to become one of the finest Franciacorta wineries.

Situated in the southern half of Lombardy on the edge of the town of Adro, just south of Lake Iseo, the majority of plantings are Chardonnay (approx. 70%) along with Pinot Noir (and just 4ha of Pinot Blanc for their still wines). They now have 200ha of vineyard across 11 different villages, mostly at 250-300m altitude. Each vineyard confers a unique character on the resulting base wine, giving Roberto a broad spectrum of styles to blend for each cuvée. It is this skilful blending, meticulous attention to detail and long bottle maturation that give Ferghettina's wines great finesse and individuality.

Grapes are the only ingredient of Ferghettina’s work, an expression of an indissoluble bond with the soil, and as a mark of respect for its land the Gatti family converted its estate to organic farming, becoming fully certified by Valoritalia in 2017.

Over the course of the next two years, Ferghettina is planning to produce all of its own electrical energy requirements and it has already installed a network of pipes to collect rain water that is then used for irrigation.

Grapes

Chardonnay, Pinot Nero

Production

The Gatti family manage 120 hectares of vineyards in six localities within the DOC.

85% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Nero.

The alcoholic fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tank at controlled temperature between 16 and 18°C with selected yeast. Tirage is done in spring time of the following year, the wine spends 30 months ageing on the lees. At disgorgement 7 grams/litre of sugar is added.

Tasting Notes

An exuberant, confident and bright style - lively and very approachable with a citrus fruits and golden apple character which is at the same time both incisive yet quite gentle.

Drink as an aperitif, or with starters and light mains such as shellfish, cold meats, and light, soft cheeses.
