The meteoric rise in popularity of Italian sparkling wine has slowly reached UK shores. Still, it remains relatively unknown to the British palate.
Franciacorta, the leading Italian sparkling wine appellation of Italy, has shifted in a short time from a small niche with a cult following, to a serious contender to some of the most renown sparkling wines produced in the world.
But how does it fare compared to the world’s most iconic sparkling cuvées? What are the distinct styles of Franciacorta? What is Satèn? What are the major areas, and its influences?
Join Deputy Head Sommelier Federico Moccia and friend of the Club Nelson Pari for an exclusive masterclass featuring some of the greatest sparkling wines Italy has ever produced.
We hope to see you there…
