Franciacorta

The 2,800-hectare wine region of Franciacorta in Northern Italy was carved out of the sedimentary rock between 50,000–150,000 years ago, by the toing and froing of an Alpine glacier. Franciacorta the wine was created in 1985, although it only ‘won’ its DOCG status in 1996. The grapes now used are predominantly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with Pinot Bianco (aka Pinot Blanc) making up the numbers.
