is a point of excellence for our understanding of Franciacorta.
It is the ultimate expression of a project whose objective has been the search for the pure essence of harmony since 1977. Today it symbolises a tradition that strives to represent, in terms of quality and type, the most mysterious soul of the land of Franciacorta, and the wine-making style of Bellavista.
Bellavista Arzente, wine distillate
Arzente, an ancient variant of the Italian word “ardente” (‘fiery’), was a term coined by Gabriele D’Annunzio in the ‘30s to refer to a distilled wine more commonly known as “brandy”.
Bellavista’s Arzente is the result of discontinuous distillation of exclusively Chardonnay wines performed using original copper Charentais stills. The wines are picked from a restricted number of select wines from the Franciacorta region and their ageing process takes place in small white oak casks.
The refined aroma has a slight hint ofvanilla and delicately complex nuances of cocoa, flowers, elegant ripe fruit, figs, plums, hazelnuts and tobacco.
