Of the 30 hectares, about 26 ha. are planted with white grape varieties such as chardonnay and pinot blanche, both for the vinification of Curtefranca bianco DOC, and for the elaboration of Franciacorta bases from which the different types of FRANCIACORTA DOCG will be obtained: BRUT, EXTRA DRY , SATEN, EXTRA BRUT, “CLARO” zero dosage and “DONNA ALBERTA” Brut Rosè.
The remaining four hectares present a clonal selection of red grape varieties: Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Barbera and Nebbiolo destined for the production of the red Curtefranca DOC and the Riserva Barricato “Breda”. The Franciacorta bottle aging for a minimum of 30 months for the basic products, reaches 50/60 months for the Millesimati
