Family-run winery that has made of its location on the eastern border of Franciacorta its heart and soul, Le Cantorie rises on the hill of Casaglio in Gussago, surrounded by a beautiful valley made of terraces that seem painted.
The peculiar conformation of the hilly territory – characterized by steep and exposed slopes and by a limy, clayey and rocky soil – gives to the grapes cultivated by the Bontempi family minerality, freshness and flavour, perfect features for sparkling wines. The ventilated and dry area, then, is ideal for the production of high quality red wines, which need late harvests.
The 12 hectares of vineyards owned by the company, cultivated with care and passion, rise entirely along the terraced and steep slopes of the hills between Gussago and Cellatica and enjoy a favourable exposure.
The strength of this amphitheatre, together with the exposure and the peculiar conformation of the ground, is the constant breeze that allows the grapes to ripen very well, to obtain high quality grapes and, as a result, to produce high quality wines. Le Cantorie truly believes in the fact that quality begins from vineyards, and that in the winery quality is only maintained. This is the reason why the winery has chosen only hilly vineyards.
