Lombardia | franciacorta
The gentle rolling hills of Franciacorta lie close to the Iseo Lake, in the province of Brescia. At the southern border it is located the Monte Orfano, the oldest and most interesting outcrop of the Po valley.
From a geological point of view the Monte Orfano is constituted by conglomerate rocks, originated 26 – 5 million years ago. It is on the southern side of the Monte Orfano , on the steep slope, with full sun and sheltered by winds where are the vineyards. The daily evening breeze assures regular and organically perfect growth of the grapes with peculiar and gorgeous aroma.
