Berlucchi ’61 Franciacorta Brut Rosé DOCG

Since 1955, Berlucchi is the market leader of the Champagne Method in Italy.
In 1961 Franco Ziliani created the first ever Franciacorta wine and today the Franciacorta Method is one of the strictest sets of specifications in the world in terms of productive yields and months of ageing.
The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes are coming from totally converted organic vineyards and follow a dedicated Sustainability Report, developed and produced with the consultancy of EY Sustainability and with the collaboration of LifeGate, showcasing the various quality achievements impacting the 85 hectares of estate vineyards belonging to the Franciacorta pioneer and category founder, as well as the approximately 450 hectares of those of its partner-growers.

Elegant and refined, this is a rosé for those who want something more from a rosé.
