Conte Aimo

Vinification

An exceptional vintage in Franciacorta characterized by highly positive temperature swings from daytime warmth to evening and nighttime coolness which assisted the wines to achieve both a great aromatic fragrance and a vibrant crispness. The personality of the Pinot Noir gives both elegance and structure, further aided by the important complexity conferred by the lengthy stay on the lees.

The estate is located in the heart of the Franciacorta production zone around the centuries-old hamlet of Calino. The vine has always been cultivated in this area of important wines.
