France-Italy: a love story ... but also a never ending competition of who makes a better wine, who produces the finest cheese and who plays a better game! However there are few things that France make and us, Italians, it doesn't matter how hard we try, how deeply involved we get, we never get there. And ... one above all it is the all mighty Champagne.
In Italy we have an area, the deep north of Italy, Lombardy on the eastern coast of the Iseo lake, that goes by the name of Franciacorta, where Italy's been producing since the 1960 sparkling wine exactly the same grape varieties and style of Champagne. Again we do not want to compete with champagne, we do not want compare Franciacorta with 500 year and plus of history of wine, however Franciacorta can shout very loud that what they deliver the best is value for money! The DUO of this package a SATEN and a CHARDONNAY from the historical "LA MONTINA" winery.
