"Contadi Castaldi": in this name is contained the long history of Franciacorta, of its communes and of their vocation for an exceptional agriculture. In the 1500's, period of maximum splendor of the Venetian Republic, Franciacorta produced foods and wines destined to the tables of princes, kings and rich merchants. The splendid Venice was for Franciacorta the market of choice for making its wines known. The "contadi" were, in medieval times, the counties of Franciacorta, small territorial units renamed for an excellent agricultural production. The "castaldi" were the lords of the counties to whom was entrusted the government of the lands.
Franciacorta is the area where the Contadi winery and vineyards are located, a land inherently devoted to wine.
If one observes bottles resting inside the tunnels, the round symbol is the visual representation of the particular bottom of bottles destined to Franciacorta, whereas the second sign reproduces the shape of the empty space created in the interspaces of stacks. A combination which, by referring to the double name of the winery, focuses on the value of the natural and slow development of CO2 in order to reach, through a fine and persistent perlage, the deepest and widest taste nuances.
A fragrant wine, which conquers for its original freshness of taste. The style is played on the search for harmony between complexity and pleasantness.
The color is straw yellow, with a fine and persistent perlage. The nose is fresh and elegant, with clean aromas of hawthorn, bread crust, balsamic hints, nuances of rennet apple, dried fig and peanuts. Soft in mouth, although not sweet, has a crisp and pleasing taste. The finish is long and firm, very pleasing to the palate.
