Erborista Aperitivo: The production philosophy is the same as wermut: no added alcohol, no food coloring, no burnt sugar or caramel. Only organic wine (Cabernet Sauvignon, carmenere, and Schiava) and infusion of dried officinal herbs and, in this case, fresh fruit from our orchard. The infusions are made separately, one for each plant at different extraction temperatures, and then combined to compose the recipe.
The sugar content is reduced as much as possible and the sweetening is done with some native plants such as elderberry flowers and linden leaves and flowers.
Wild chamomile and cherry and black cherries stand out in the infusion mixture. Slightly bitter notes are given by thyme, marjoram and elderberry roots. Production is only one batch per year when seasonal fruit is available. The best way of enjoy it is pure, cold or as a base for different cocktails
Pianora, founded in 1986, is located on Montorfano, a hill of tectonic origin that marks the southern border of Franciacorta, characterized by the presence of the only steeply sloping terraced vineyards of this wine area.
The vineyard is made up of 2 hectares in all, of which 1.5 are vineyards and the remaining dedicated orchard and grove to promote biodiversity. The ancient terraces are located at 280 meters above sea level; they are very steep (slope approx. 50%), and with an excellent southern exposure.
The soil on which the vines grow is of tectonic origin with morainic surface remodeling: it is composed of pebbles of different sizes, conglomerate, quartz sand, red clay and marly limestone. In the vineyard there are some of the largest and most fascinating outcrops of conglomerate shoals in the area.
