Discover More About Our Products

The wines of the '61 line pay homage to the first sparkling wines of the Berlucchi house. In fact, it was in 1961 that the first bottles of sparkling wine "made the French way" came out of the cellars, as the wine technician Franco Ziliani said to the then patron Guido Berlucchi. It took years before the feat of replicating the elegant French bubbles in Italy succeeded. And it is important to note that, until then, only still wines had been produced in Franciacorta.

Berlucchi '61 Franciacorta Brut is a classic apéritif wine, fresh, rich and elegant. On the nose, it captivates with its rich notes of white fruits and citrus fruits, while on the palate it surprises with its smoothness and pleasant acidity.

It is also a perfect sparkling wine to accompany typical Franciacorta dishes, such as casoncelli and lake fish. It is also excellent with pasta, risotto, white meats and cheeses.

Second fermentation in the bottles and maturation sur lie for a minimum of 24 months followed by an additional 2 months after disgorgement.

4 /5

I especially liked the colour. Smells of yeast and bakery.It wasn't too sweet, it liked me.
I think the best pairing would be with meat.
My best friend from Franciacorta recommended it to me.
