Not the recipe of an unusual recipe. Rather the encounter between our ExtraBrut and one of the most reputed and loved Cuisine magazines. Some time ago we havebeen asked by the photographer Adriano Brusaferri and Sale&Pepe to offer our wine and house for a piece dedicated to the unusual matching between wine and one of the most loved Italian baked specialties: the "focaccia" in its many forms. The experience, interesting and also amusing, produced not only some great shots but also another nice results: "this very dry wine, thanks to its "nonchalance" and its exemplar versatility, makes even firmer the relationship between the focaccia base and its stuffing." So, between the many matchings that works with our ExtraBrut, from now on you will not have to miss the "focaccia".
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.
