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 very 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 follwing 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 it's perfect exposure to the rocky earth 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 it's grapes not from huge vineyards, but from small plots of land farmed as precious little gardens, resulting in the developement 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
