Wine in Milan
Discover the top Milan wine producers
This notable sparkling wine is from the Lombardy region of Italy usually using Chardonnay and Pinot grapes. It is produced by the classic traditional method of secondary fermentation in bottle. In 1995, Franciacorta was awarded the Denomination of Origin Controlled and Guaranteed, allowing it to simply state the name Franciacorta on the bottle as a guarantee of production method and quality. It sits alongside cava and champagne as the only three names with such a privilege in Europe.
