Notes: Like all other Bellavista wines, this is elegantly crafted. Made from more than 100 parcels of grapes, all picked & vinified separately then blended together in the perfect “Cuvée”.

‘Alma’ has a lively & persistent fizz with fine bubbles. It is an attractive pale yellow in colour, with aromas of white flowers & stone fruits, with subtle hints of vanilla, which follow through on to the palate. Fine, elegant yet rounded & beautifully balanced.

Made in the ‘traditional method’ (aka Champagne method), the different parcels of wine are all vinified separately. 15% of the wines used in the blend are fermented & then matured for seven months in small oak barrels. These wines are then blended with the “reserve wines”, which come from between six & nine earlier vintages. Once blended, the wine is bottled & the second fermentation takes place in bottle. It is then left to age on the lees for two & a half years before release. The contribution of the reserve wines ensures Bellavista’s consistent, signature style in every bottle.

 

Producer Info: This estate makes some of Italy’s finest sparkling wines from its 200 hectares of vineyard situated in the western part of the Franciacorta zone in a natural amphitheatre. The glacial soil is full of stones, providing the ideal environment for the Chardonnay & Pinot Noir grapes used in the production of their Franciacorta. Bellavista, meaning ‘beautiful view’ in Italian, was founded by Vittorio Moretti in the early 1970s, with the first vintage produced in 1979. In 1981, he met a young winemaker, Mattia Vezzola & this partnership transformed Bellavista into Italy’s leading producer of quality sparkling wine.
