Of all the Bellavista wines, Brut Cuvée best represents the characteristic qualities of Franciacorta. Its balance derives from the blending of at least thirty selections. The addition of some older wines, with their distinctive perfumes and flavours, confers consistency to the taste, plus roundness and finesse. The grapes used are 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Bianco and Pinot Nero. The mousse is white, lively and persistent, the bubbles small and long-lasting. The colour is light yellow with hints of green. The perfume is full, inviting, rich in ripe fruits, chlorophyll and vanilla; these perfumes are fully reflected in the taste, and are echoed in the aftertaste

 

"The NV Brut Cuvee is the finest entry-level methode Champenoise wine being made in Italy. White peaches, green apples, flowers and crushed rocks are layered into an energetic frame of notable class. Bellavista’s Brut Cuvee is one of the go-to wines at my house. It never disappoints. This is Lot: L0321 11032002301. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2014." 90 points - Antonio Galloni - eRobertParker.com, February 2012

 

"A faceted sparkler whose whole is incredibly seductive and inviting. The aromas span the exotic fruit spectrum—from banana to kiwi—but leave room for smooth butter and yeast. Very creamy and silky in the mouth, with lively perlage" 92 points - M.L -  Wine Enthusiast, June 2006

 

"Not posh prosecco, but made in Lombardy according to the traditional Méthode Champenoise using Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco and Pinot Nero grapes. While the result is champagne-like, there is a distinctive Italian quality to it – fragrant, silky on the mouth, lovely tiny bubbles, subtle, tropical- fruit flavours. Delightful." Terry Kirby - The Independent, October 2013
