Franciacorta entered history as early as the Lombard period in the 8th century AD where this blessed region was used for winemaking. It has morainic soils, a mild climate tempered by the Lago d’Iseo, and cool breezes from the Val Camonica creating optimal conditions for growing high-quality grapes.

The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vines for the Berlucchi 61 grow in the Berlucchi vineyards located all over the Franciacorta region to the west of Brescia in Lombardia.

The grapes were selected from the best vineyards in the 19 municipal areas of Franciacorta and sorted followed by a gentle, gradual pressing of clusters with fractioning of the must. The first fermentation took place in steel tanks.

Following the assemblage of the cuvée in the spring following harvest the second fermentation took place in the bottles with maturation on the lees for a minimum of 24 months followed by an additional 2 months in the bottles after disgorgement.

Longevity 3-5 years.
