Franciacorta is the first classic Italian Sparkling Wine to have obtained DOCG status in 1995. Franciacorta is therefore a land, a method (the Traditional Method) and a wine style.
Antica Fratta was built back on the mid 1800`s by Luigi Rossetti, that had made it the largest and finest in the province. With four intersecting tunnels arranged in the form of a Greek cross, it could hold 6,000 hectolitres of wine, an enormous amount for the time, winning it its local nickname, el cantinù, the big cellar.
After his death, the property was sold many times, until 1979, with the birth of Antica Fratta, a project that would restore its ancient splendour. Today, Antica Fratta “re-launches,” with renewed and greater ambitions, and with the firm intention of becoming the “Essence” of Franciacorta.
