A Boutique Winery in Brescia

The Emilio Franzoni Winery has its origins in 1910 and for four generations has handed down the passion and traditions of the family. It is located on the beautiful slopes of the Botticinese hills, in the Lombardia region, in Brescia. The gentle hills form an amphitheater in which this beautiful valley is enclosed, creating a microclimate particularly suitable for wine production.

Making of the Renown Wines

Botticino DOC is known internationally by the name of “Baralo of Lombardy” because of its strong character. Botticino wine is made from four varieties of grape which are Barbera, Marzemino, Sangiovese, and Schiava Gentile. The barbera gives the acidity that allows their wine to resist over time, Marzemino gives that intense durable color, Sangiovese gives that particular aroma to the wine, and Schiava Gentile gives the sweetness to the wine. The ratio these grapes are put into the winemaking process helps them get the unique characteristic of their prized wines. The production phase starts from handpicking grapes with careful selection which are then kept for drying in the loft for about two months. Afterward, they are vinified “In red” with a long maceration at a controlled temperature. The long aging in oak barrels is followed by further refinement in the bottle for at least 10 months.

Achievements Still Counting

They have won OSCAR of the Douja d’Or National Competition Douja d’Or of Asti, 3 years in a row from 2014 to 2016. They have also won a gold medal at the 46th National Competition Douja d’Or of Asti in 2018. Apart from this, they have also won many awards in France and Germany since 2007. The winery produces four different Botticino DOC that include Classico, Tenuta Bettina, Foja, and Foja Riserva.
