A great news from "Millésime Bio", Montpellier's Organic Wine Fair. Our wines are growing, are getting better and are more and more appreciated by Experts and Guides. In the tasting notes of the 2015 edition of Francois Gilbert and Philippe Gaillard's French guide “The world wine signature” – dedicated to Italy – our 2009 Satèn has been awarded the score of 89/100, which surpasses the 86/100 score of 2014. It is worth noting that only 12 Franciacorta labels have been awarded a higher score. Even more worth noting is the fact that Francois Gilbert himself has popped by our stand to meet and award us in person.
From May to October 2015 Franciacorta will be the Official Sparkling Wine of Expo Milano 2015. The entire Franciacorta Region - including us at CorteBianca - is preparing to welcome wine aficionados and experts in a journey of discovery of our sparkling wine and our land.
Franciacorta will be the star of any official event - and not only that. A series of events will be organized to make sure the Expo visitors will discover our wines and our territory. The Franciacorta Consortium main objective is in fact to incentivate tourism, promoting a land rich in History, traditions and food and wine excellences.
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.
