Professional Wine Reviews for Bellavista Franciacorta Brut Teatro alla Scala 2013

Rated 95 by James Suckling
Deep, smoky nose, then a rich and complete palate that caresses and fascinates, candied citrus and toasty notes cascading at the finish. Drink or hold.
Rated 91 by Wine Advocate
Dedicated to Milan's celebrated opera house, the 2013 Franciacorta Teatro alla Scala Brut is a blend of 77% Chardonnay and 23% Pinot Nero. The wine shows an accessible, easy-drinking style with lean character and substance. However, the bouquet is quite fragrant and generous with delicate notes of stone fruit followed by toasted almond and crushed mineral. This lean classic method-sparkling wine has the snappy personality and acidity to pair with appetizers and finger foods. Some 130,000 bottles were made. The first vintage of this wine was 1979.

Winery Bellavista

Region: Lombardy

The beautiful region of Lombardy in north west Italy may be dominated by the huge metropolitan center of Milan and the industrial areas which surround it, but there is also plenty of unspoilt green space in the region which has proven itself to be ideal for viticulture over the centuries. In particular, the area around the enormous and ever popular Lake Garda has shown itself to be an ideal wine producing region, as the lowlands enjoy cooler temperatures than many of the surrounding areas, which allow grapes to ripen more slowly and fully. The Lake Garda vineyards are most well known for the exceedingly high quality Trebbiano di Laguna grapes, used to make a superb white wine which has become something of a flagship for the region. However, today there are dozens of wineries in Lombardy growing a wide range of red and white grapes, and producing wines of excellent character and flavor.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
