Pinot Nero arrive in Italy thanks to the Count Carlo Vistarino in 1850 who, some years later, started the production of the Italian Metodo Classico Brut. As a tribute of this event we produce the 1865.
The grapes are grown in a special vineyard of Rocca de’ Giorgi estate. Finally the wine spend at least 60 months in bottle making a slow fermentation with an exchange and a “mélange” of yeast and residual sugars.
History, wisdom, skill and, furthermore, complexity and strength are the elements that make this wine so appealing: Just enjoy the amazing ensemble!

Carlo Giorgi di Vistarino introduced the pinot nero grape to the Oltrepo Pavese between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, going on to win awards in both London and Paris for the sparkling wines thus produced. His work was taken further by Ottaviano and Carlo, and is today in the hands of Ottavia Giorgi di Vistarino.Find out more
