Provaglio d'Iseo, Franciacorta, Lombardia
Corte Bianca is set like a gem, in the profile of a soil that has generated it. In Sergnana, in Provaglio d'Iseo, between the gentler slopes of the foothill part of the northern Franciacorta and in a wider context where the denomination "pian delle viti" is a testimony of an ancient tradition linked to the wine. The rows grow on a slope facing the south, but protected by a hill from the excessive presence of the sun and the warm currents rising in the afternoon from the valley below. The microclimate is usually fresher than the other viticulture areas of the district, and gives us equilibrated ripening of the grapes even in the hottest years.
The finesse of the Franciacorta resulting has its base on this unique and peculiar climatic condition. The natural Amphitheatre, shielded on every side, on which the vine plants rest makes sure that the risks for the integrity of the grapes are limited and the defense can be organized in a natural way. Indeed, Corte Bianca has always adopted an approach based on the respect of the environment, the biodiversity and therefore the health of the costumers, as certified by the Istituto Mediterraneo di Certificazione for the organic production of grapes and wines
