Giorgi di Vistarino has been the family that has owned this agricultural estate in the municipality of Rocca de Giorgi in the Oltrepò Pavese since the 15th century and has contributed over time to defining the intimate link between viticulture and terroir. In the 19th century they were the first to import and plant Pinot Noir cuttings than today, with 140 hectares of vineyards, represents most of the production. Company that has an extension of well 826 hectares occupying 80% of the municipality of Rocca de Giorgi: 640 hectares are of woods, wash, arable land and arboreal plants e 188 hectares of vineyards that have been distributed over the entire property going to search for the best soils with the best exposures for the vineyards. The limestone / clay soils and the strong temperature range have consolidated the presence of vines for white wine making and in any case, not only Pinot Noir but also Riesling, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Moscato, Croatina, Barbera and Cabernet have found their ideal habitats. They take care of the lands and their vines with extreme care not by seeking the maximum quantitative yields but always seeking the perfect balance between Nature and man. The 1865 is a classic Italian method that takes its name from the year in which Count Carlo Vistarino produced his sparkling wine with Pinot Noir grapes for the first time, which he imported. Blanc de Noirs which today is the house flag is produced exclusively from the best bunches of this vine from the different plots. Sell yourself by hand, the grapes are then vinified and then fermented in the bottle for at least 60 months followed, after opening, gives 6 months of aging in bottle. The glass is golden yellow with fine and persistent perlage; the exciting charge of Pinot Noir on the nose makes it complex and broad with refined hints of white flowers, candied citrus fruits and "pastry". On the palate it is undoubtedly structured thanks to the long aging that is balanced by a beautiful freshness with a finish of dry and mineral sip. In the magnum it is even more “delicate” with a very fine and even more appetizing bubble.
