The encounter

THE DAWN OF THE FRANCIACORTA METHOD.

"WHAT IF WE MADE A SPARKLING WINE THE WAY THE FRENCH DO?"

“The butler escorted me to the living room of Palazzo Lana Berlucchi.
The notes of Georgia on my mind  resonated in the air:
Guido Berlucchi was at the piano. The count closed the instrument, greeted me warmly,
and began to question me, a young winemaker, about how to improve his unstable white wine.
I answered his questions without hesitation, and in greeting him I dared to suggest: what if we were also to make a sparkling wine in the French style?”

Berlucchi accepted this proposal from Franco Ziliani, and the two pioneers joined forces with their friend Giorgio Lanciani. Thus the challenge began and, after a few less fortunate years, in 1961 three thousand bottles of Pinot di Franciacorta were sealed. Uncorked the following year, they turned out to be excellent.

Guido Berlucchi was a lover of beauty and goodness, so music and the piano were bound to be among his passions. This playlist was compiled as a way of remembering him and those magical, dreamy times when our beloved Franciacorta was first created. Why not listen to it as the soundtrack to your next aperitif?
