Castel Faglia Monogram Franciacorta Brut Blanc de Blancs DOCG
This traditional sparkling wine is made in Franciacorta DOCG which is located in the heart of Lombardy (North Italy). The producer is the Monogram winery, which in turn is part of Castel Faglia. This Franciacorta Brut Blanc de Blancs is made from 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Blanc grapes. The harvest takes place mid-August, exclusively manually, after which the grapes are transported in crates and then pressed gently. Primary fermentation 80% in stainless steel barrels and 20% in small oak barrels. Secondary fermentation in the bottle (classical method), followed by a maturation of 24 months.
This delicious bubble has a beautiful straw yellow color with green highlights and has beautiful rich aromas of exotic fruit and citrus fruits. Abundant mousse with a refined and persistent perlage. The taste is rich, soft and balanced with a strong freshness. Advice: drink this wine cool (preferably between 4 and 6 degrees).
This Blanc de Blancs is excellent as an aperitif and also tastes great with various fish species (oysters, caviar, raw fish) and white meat. The wine also really comes into its own with a drink because of a festive occasion. Made with the same grapes as a champagne and also the same production process is used here. In fact the only big difference between a Franciacorta and a Champagne is the price !!
“Mousse with a pleasant, generous creaminess. Snack in a not too sweet Berlinerbol. Wild peach, ripe pear, soft bitters and fine acids. ”, Review Harold Hamersma in De Grote Hamersma 2018 with an 8.5
Review Perswijn Magazine: Very good - Excellent “Toasted, pear, peach, smoky, brioche. Beautifully lush, soft, fine acids, bitters ”.

Monogram winery is part of Castel Faglia, and is located in the Italian town of Calino di Cazzago San Martino. Franciacorta DOCG is located in the middle of Lombardy (Northern Italy) in the province of Brescia. The area includes 17 hectares of vineyards topped with Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco and a small amount of Pinot Nero grapes. On the grounds of Monogram is a castle (hence the name Castel Faglia) which is located at the highest point of all Franciacorta, making it very favorable from the sun. Thanks to the rocky soil and the microclimate, this area has unparalleled properties, resulting in a very unique grape. The area has a continental climate, which is interspersed with a mild Mediterranean climate, resulting in temperature increases that often cause heavy hailstorms in the summer. Furthermore, the grapes grow here, as one of the few in this region, on terrace vineyards. Monogram is well known in Italy for the fresh wines that this beautiful winery makes, and also for the fact that only white grape varieties are used.
The estate has been owned by the Cavicchioli family, winegrowers and producers of award-winning and well-known wines since 1928. The cellar is surrounded by forests and vineyards and built under a hill to reduce its environmental and energy impact. The underground section where the bottles are kept for many years of aging guarantees the best low temperatures in summer and avoids temperature fluctuations in every season.
