($185; a blend of 59% chardonnay and 41% pinot nero) Medium-deep straw with a lively, very fine mousse Deep, slightly smoky nose shows orange blossom, vanillin oak and apricot aromas, plus a good dusting of minerals.

This is the top Franciacorta made by Bellavista, from grapes harvested in the best crus of Erbusco, Nigoline, Torbiato and Colombaro.
