WE LISTEN TO EACH ONE, IN SEARCH OF PERFECT HARMONY.

Behind every bottle of Berlucchi, there is an orchestra conductor. He is the expert oenologist who blends different wines to create the desired result, the so-called cuvée, or the definitive mix that will feature in celebrations in Italy and around the world.

To create the cuvée, it is essential to know how to listen to the most subtle nuances of numerous batches of wine from different varieties and vineyards, which have been separated during the harvest.

It is a delicate phase that requires many tasting sessions: over 150 sparkling wine bases are assembled to become our future Franciacortas.

It is in fact a recipe, one that is difficult to create and equally difficult to keep consistent in terms of flavour and characteristics, year after year. To succeed, you need an expert oenologist whose vocation is to do precisely this.
