Organic and sustainable agriculture, biologic cultivation. Models that respect nature, a resource to be defended and preserved. This is the main theme of the discussion nowadays. This is true for the world of wine too, especially in Franciacorta. Many producers have made this choice. No chemical treatment, preservation of the ecosystem, and respect for the grapes and their characteristics. The result is great "classic method" wines, that are original from this terroir. Above all, wines that can compete at international level, conquer new markets and contribute to the commercial success of Italian wine in the world.
What makes us proud is the fact that CorteBIanca sits beside important names such asMaurizio Zanella, Barone Pizzini and Contadi Castaldi, as one of the bst practices of what is happening in Franciacorta. A further confirmation of the rightness of our "natural choice".
The new "guide to Restaurants" of the Sole 24 Ore newspaper, curated by the "Gastronauta" Davide Paolini, has been presented in Milan. The book is dedicated to the new trends and ideas in the Italian Cuisine's scene. Not just restaurants or the classic "Osterias" of our country, but rather the many places that offer a different way to approach the table. "Settenbrini", in Rome, is one of them. It has been awarded as the best "new format" of 2012. Paolini calls it "diffused restaurant": in a single square in the Prati area in Rome, one can find a restaurant, a coffee-shop and a bookshop, where one can stop for a snack, an "aperitivo", or a proper dinner. Or just purchase a book, food products, or order some catering.
The prize – a pack of bottles of CorteBianca ExtraBrut – was given to Marco Ledda, head of the Chain, by Marina Tonsi of CorteBianca, an equally young, fresh and dynamic reality, although in the world of the wine.
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.
