The historic abode of Conti Ducco arises in the heart of Franciacorta land. The magic of this 15th century villa lies in the ability of revealing the 1900 years magnificence of the noble family history. Here we can admire 47 prestigious rooms, countless frescoes and precious marbles.
From the Roman emperor Domiziano, throughout the olivetan monks, the wine tradition has wisely been transmitted until the two current generations: Count Piero, the estate founder in 1967 and his son Giorgio, pioneer of innovations and incessant improvements.
The wine excellence is the result of the harmony between natural and physico-chemical conditions, latitude and climate where vineyards grow up. Our wine property is composed by the opportune geographical position, the lake proximity and the natural soil fertility. All these positive factors allow us to enhance the potential of our Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vines.
The grapes ripe within our owned 130 hectars which cover three different districts. Conti Ducco, one of the widest Franciacorta estate, has identified 28 specific crus, each one unique for its cultural and pedoclimatic characteristics.
This work is highlighted by a rigorous respect for the environment and a concept of sustainable and integrated agriculture.
The idea of a meeting place for important historic tradition and productive innovation, is realised through the setting up of the Technological Village.
Here every single production phase takes place. The business management of the entire winemaking process, from the vineyard to the bottling, allows the whole wine production in situ.
Conti Ducco’s “charm” will inspire everyone’s senses. Every winemaking stage maintains passion and respect for the vines and their environment. From manual harvest to the addition of the liqueur d’expedition, every passage is characterised by a perfect balance of human, environmental and climatic interactions. This is how we create our perfectly balanced, elegant and sensuous products.
Peace and silence reside in our secular cellar. This is the most magician and emotional location, where history meets present. Previously a symbol of refuge from enemy sieges, today it is crib for the "elevage sur lies " of our bottles.
The quality of our artisanal process is guaranteed by natural and flawless ambient conditions of the Caveau.
Our bottles rest for years in this irreal and quiet place. These conditions are perfect to obtain bubbles with extreme finesse, elegance and persistence. Furthermore the ageing process on selected yeasts allows an additional enrichment of our products: we achieve a release of typical classic fermentation aromas and hints. This sensuous essence will emerge from every flute of Conti Ducco. Your senses will be elevated by drinking the wonderful bollicine!
