Franco Ziliani is one of the most well-known and reputed names in the Italian world of wine. He has been among the first journalists in our country to understand – and take advantage of – the possibilities offered by online communication. His blog ("vinoalvino.org") has introduced, since some years from now, a new and different way to tell about wine and its stories – accessible to all, and of immediate success.
Ziliani has dedicated a long and kind piece to our Franciacorta Extrabrut, Satèn e Rosé, and to CorteBianca, in his blog "lemillebolleblog.it", especially dedicated to sparkling wines. Apart from the very positive tasting notes, one can find clever suggestions on the matching food and dishes, and above all the story of CorteBianca and our philosophy. It is rewarding to see how our spirit and approach has been understood and recounted with such clarity and frankness.
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.
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.
