Enjoy Ferghettina Brut, Franciacorta DOCG NV for an elegant experience which is fantastic for any celebration. This wine exudes a bright, exuberant style with lively citrus and golden apple flavour. Perfect for an aperitif or with starters and light mains such as shellfish, cold meats, and soft cheeses. This is a firm favourite at Aitken's!
JancisRobinson.com: 16Pts"Lightly nutty aroma, baked apple fruit with a touch of mixed peel. Frothy, soft, easy-going but with good autolytic expression and decent length."

About the Producer
Ferghettina is a family winery - established in 1991 by Roberto Gatti, and run with his wife Andreina, and their children Laura and Matteo. Starting with just 3-4ha of vineyard and a small production of Franciacorta Brut, Ferghettina has now grown to become one of the finest Franciacorta wineries.
Situated in the southern half of Lombardy on the edge of the town of Adro, just south of Lake Iseo, the majority of plantings are Chardonnay (approx. 70%) along with Pinot Noir (and just 4ha of Pinot Blanc for their still wines). They now have 200ha of vineyard across 11 different villages, mostly at 250-300m altitude. Each vineyard confers a unique character on the resulting base wine, giving Roberto a broad spectrum of styles to blend for each cuvée. It is this skilful blending, meticulous attention to detail and long bottle maturation that give Ferghettina's wines great finesse and individuality.
Vineyard and Winery
The Gatti family manage 120 hectares of vineyards in six localities within the DOC. The alcoholic fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tank at controlled temperature between 16 and 18°C with selected yeast. Tirage is done in spring time of the following year, the wine spends 30 months ageing on the lees. At disgorgement 7 grams/litre of sugar is added.
