The recently published world-class Tom Stevenson Christie's guide has not only given our wines a very high score of 82 points, which brings them at the level of the best Franciacorta, but on top of that it has made use of some flattering words to describe our young enterprise. Here is the integral text:
"CorteBianca is an exciting new Franciacorta house. The first wines were made in 2008 and brought to market in 2011. Currently they make their own wine from only a part of the 4.5 hectares they cultivate, all certified organic. A very impressive beginning, with a lovely, creamy/yeasty, refined style. Classy presentations.
