Lo Sparviere Franciacorta Brut Millesimato (vintage-dated) is produced exclusively from Chardonnay grapes grown in Lo Sparviere’s historic estate vineyards in the communes of Monticelli and Provaglio d’Iseo. Its clay-silt soils impart a pronounced minerality, resulting in a wine that exhibits an admirable marriage of complexity and elegance, with a crisp, dry palate that shows fine fruit and earthy mineral.
