In a Nutshell
A fantastic zero dosage vintage fizz - around 6,000 bottles are produced, and only in the best vintages.
Rich brioche aromas with hints of apple and citrus behind some yeasty, savoury characters. The palate is similarly complex - mineral, nutty and lightly saline notes backed with crisp citrus and a fine mousse. Real weight and length.
The Gatti family manage 120 hectares of vineyards in six localities within the DOCG. The base wine is a third each blend of Saten / Milledi / Extra Brut. Secondary fermentation is in bottle and the wine is matured on its lees for 80 months.
Azienda Agricola Ferghettina
One of the emerging estates in Italy’s booming sparkling wine sector. Roberto Gatti spent 20 years as cellarmaster and viticulturalist at Bellavista, one of the early pioneers of the Franciacorta region, before creating Ferghettina in 1990.
