Tenuta Montenisa

In the heart of Franciacorta

The Montenisa estate is located in the heart of Franciacorta, around the historic village of Calino, a territory rich in noble traditions where vineyards have always been carefully tended. Grape varieties grown on the estate best represent Franciacorta production: Chardonnay, Pinot Nero and Pinot Bianco. Grapes are meticulously harvested by hand and then undergo a soft pressing with modern pneumatic presses. Bottled wine ages on the lees for long periods of time; manual remuage is still performed and great care is given to each individual bottle.

Marchese Antinori Cuvée Royale originates from the combination of tradition, history and the vocation of this territory; a wine characterized by lively and harmonious floral and fruity aromas that combine notes of peach, bread crust and yeast. In addition to Cuvée Royale, the new family of sparkling wines made by Méthode Champenoise includes Marchese Antinori Blanc des Blancs and Marchese Antinori Rosé. Just a few more weeks of patience before being able to taste the rare and prestigious single vintage sparkling wines that are still aging in the cellars.
