NV Bellavista Alma Gran Cuvee Franciacorta DOCG Brut [JS91]
James Suckling, 91 Points
"Anyone who thinks that Italian sparkling wines are always lighter and simpler than Champagne should try this substantial wine with pear, apple and berry nuances and a successful balance of yeast character and acidity. Long finish, where the berry notes dominate. Drink now. Disgorged in 2017."
Vinitaly writes, "Alma Gran Cuvée Bellavista is a point of excellence for Franciacorta. It is the ultimate expression of a project whose objective has been the search for the pure essence of harmony since 1977. Today it symbolises a tradition that strives to represent, in terms of quality and type, the most mysterious soul of the land of Franciacorta, and the wine-making style of Bellavista.
This result is achieved through craft methods that have become rare, as a result of the painstaking care we take with each individual phase of the process and the respect we have for ‘time’, choosing nature and its extraordinary biodiversity as the only guide and yardstick. Its name, Alma, pays homage to the Land of Franciacorta which produces wonders to behold (from the Latin ‘almus’ meaning to nurture, feed, give life to, and by extension great, noble, magnificent)."
