Family-run winery that has made of its location on the hills on the eastern border of Franciacorta its heart and soul, Le Cantorie rises on top of the hill of Casaglio in Gussago, surrounded by a beautiful valley made of terraces that seem painted.
The steep and exposed slopes – together with by a limy, clayey and rocky soil – give 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 love for the land, for the vine and for its products has accompanied the Bontempi family for generations. The sweet memory of the tradition meets, in the company, a strong interest in modernity, innovation and functionality. New organization, new spaces and new production techniques are harmoniously integrated in what appears to be an eighteenth-century castle, creating an evocative framework.
