ROMANTICA

The home of Romantica is based in Passirano, in the heart of the Franciacorta production region.

The home of Romantica is based in Passirano, in the heart of the Franciacorta production region. It is surrounded by ten hectares of Vineyard. This estate is managed by the Avanzi family, who have been devoted to wine making for over eighty years on the west shore of lake Garda.

 

Romantica produces a limited number of bottles in the Brut, Satèn, Rosé and Millesimato. The meticulous care of the vineyard, the innovative winemaking techniques and attention to detail are the basis of Romantica philosophy.

 

The Franciacorta brut is a 100% Chardonnay ripened to perfection before vinification, afterwards it is refined on yeasts for 30 months before disgorging.

 

The Romantica Satèn is made in the same way but with slightly less pressure than the regular brut, this characteristic gives to the wines an incredible creaminess, almost silky sensation.

 

The Rose is made with a little of Pinot Nero, this gives a beautiful pale pink colour to the wine, it is then also aged for 30 months.

 

The Millesimato is made only on the best years and only by Chardonnay grapes, a part of the wine is fermented in barrique, this gives an extra layer to the wine. After 30 months of ageing on its lees the wine is disgorged and finally goes in the market.
