Luca Gardini is one of the most important names among the Italian - and not only Italian - sommeliers. He was the man behind the wine cellar of the famous Milanese "Cracco" restaurant, he is world champion in his profession, and he has curated the wine selection of "Milano Golosa", the two-days event organized by the "Gastronaut" Davide Paolini. We met Luca at our tasting desk, and he expressed appreciation for our wines.
The Milanese event gave us the opportunity to get in contact the great wine producers of our country, all really at the top of their profession, who made us discover and taste great wines. Wines that are telling us the story we want to tell too: a vineyard and a home immersed in nature, and able to offer wines of the highest quality.
Our CorteBianca has been chosen for the second time round by the Giornale di Brescia's insert "Cucina e Sapori" to accompany a gerat chef's recipe. Some time ago it happened to our Extra Brut, with the "SanPietro" fish recipe by Luisa Franceschetti's "Filo d'Acqua" restaurant. We especially appreciated the tasting notes which described our wine as "dry and with character". While some days ago, our "Rosé" wine was chosen to accompany the "Baccalà alla Brescian" created by the chef Michele Valotti of the "La Madia" restaurant, The nots tell us about "the light tannicity" of the Rosé, and how it goes well with the hors d'oeuvre, the beef and goos salami, as well as the fish soup, In brief, from "aperitivo" to supper.
We believe there is a single and invisible thread that, like an antique lace, links together the people, the animals, the plants, the culture and history of a place, in a deep and harmonic relationship.
Producing wine means for us to follow the connections of this thread, starting from a corner of the Franciacorta land, amongst sunny vineyards and thick woods, with the dream of preserving and defending a microcosm, fully respecting its original nature and soul.
This is CorteBianca. A winery that brings together a dedication to paramount quality with respect for the land and the soil, through a precise ethical and aesthetical philosophy and the determination to protect its generosity and beauty.
