Vinification Details

  • During grape harvest, the grapes undergo a strict selection before being pressed: only the best grape bunches are picked and set in specific crates. In Castel Faglia there are strict rules applied to the pressing procedure: only the must resulting from the very light and soft pressing is kept to produce Franciacorta. When pressing is finished, the must is separated by each field, and following is the alcoholic fermentation in small wooden barrels.

History

  • The company's name originates from the castle of the ancient owner Faglia, set on a hill of morainic origin at 300 metres above sea level, with vine-clad terraces. Thanks to its perfect exposure to the rocky soil and microclimate, a very unique grape is obtained because produced in an environment with incomparable features.

Regional Information

  • The selection of grapes to be used for the production of Franciacorta is of basic importance to Castel Faglia. As a matter of fact Castel Faglia gathers its grapes not from huge vineyards, but from small plots of land farmed as precious little gardens, resulting in the development of grape bunches with different aromatic features. Castel Faglia vineyards, spreading out to about 17 hectares, as a Franciacorta policy, are solely composed of Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco and Pinot Nero vine varieties.

Just wonderful

5 stars

Delicious wine, a mile away from the stainless steel tank fermented proseccos that litter our supermarkets these days. A traditional bottle fermentation gives the wine incredible depth of flavour, slightly sweeter than a champagne but with all the sophistication. Excellent value for money, nobody will be dissapointed

Expensive

3 stars

Very disappointed with this wine for the price can get better ones much cheaper in other supermarkets. Light fizz very dry just not worth the money.

Franciacorta

4 stars

This is good Franciacorta, a good example of an excellent sparkling from Lombardy, Italy. Only problem is the consistency - bought about 30 bottles, 2 were undrinkable, 28 very good!
