Special notes

Vittorio Moretti founded the Contadi Castaldi Winery in 1991 and in 1997 its management was then entrusted to Mario Falcetti, a certified farmer and oenologist. The site previously housed a tile workshop and has kept its ancient artisanal charm. By choosing thisparticular company name, the company intends to maintain the old tradition, entailed by the term "Contadi"", in the districts in which the Castaldi lands were divided, the nobles had the right to take the best of each harvest. Today, the company hopes, through its logo and the shape of its bottles, to demonstrate its commitment to innovation and a modern approach to the Franciacorta taste.

    Echte Alternative zu Champagner - Franciacorta ist die beste Italienische DOCG für Schaumwein. Die nach traditioneller Methode vinifizierten Weine sind elegant, finessenreich und haben ein fantastisches Preis-Genuss-Verhältnis.

    Toller Franciacorta - Toller italienischer Schaumwein nach französischer Art hergestellt. @ proseccoliebhaberin: It's not a prosecco, it's a franciacorta. Big difference!

    Guter Franciacorta - Sehr angenehmer und etwas hefiger Franciacorta. Steht einem Champagner in nichts nach und passt zu vielen Gelegenheiten.
