What exactly is Franciacorta?
Don’t ever call it champagne or spumante! While spumante generically refers to a sparkling wine, the name champagne can only be used by the wines produced in the Champagne-Ardenne region of France.
The saying in the Franciacorta region is “You don’t count the years or the glasses…” The bottles, however, are counted it would seem, as the region reportedly produces 3.5 million of them a year, each made exclusively following classic methods. Franciacorta is made by the in-bottle fermentation of Chardonnay, Pinot blanc and Pinot noir grapes. This is a process which lasts a full 25 months, during 18 of which, the wine is kept with yeast, which gives the wine its tiny-pearl and creamy effervescence, its rich golden color and greenish highlights.
