The wine region of Franciacorta is located between Milan and Verona, and is distinguished for wines of quality, rich aromas and originality of production style in Italy. In the heart of Franciacorta, near the Iseo lake in a beautiful site formerly inhabited by the monks of Cluny in Ceretto. The Bersi Serlini winery has been passionately producing wine for three generations here. It is a site of peaceful preserved nature as most of the vineyards are situated on the lakes of the Regional Natural Reserve called Le Torbiere, which offers an uncontaminated and protected environment for the grapes to grow. The quality of the wine is derived from the exceptional Chardonnay grapes and the unique combination of natural elements - geography, geology and climate- that constitute its terroir. The cold mountain winds come down from the Alps to the Iseo Lake and meet hot air from the Pianura Padana forming a fresh and vibrant microclimate, ideal for providing the acidity the grape needs to thrive. The vines are divided into 35 hectares of Chardonnay, 4 ha. of Pinot Bianco, 1 ha. of Pinot Nero, 2 ha. of respectively Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The choice to cultivate almost exclusively Chardonnay grapes is a Bersi Serlini fundamental step and a decision made to satisfy quality as opposed to quantity. Chardonnay grants a maximum level of elegance and delicacy to the wine, and can challenge any important Blanc de Blanc from Champagne.
