Bianchi Brut is an excellent value sparkling wine with an intense biscuit and fruit character on the nose and good richness on the palate.
Fresh and clean, it finishes dry.
The Bianchi family winery was founded in 1928 by Italian immigrant Valentin Bianchi. It now covers 350 hectares of vineyard, situated 750
metres above sea level in San Rafael, about 240km south of Mendoza city. This is a cooler area than Mendozaís major vineyard areas of
Luj·n de Cuyo and Agrelo because it is further south, which helps the flavours and perfumes develop more gradually, resulting in more
aromatic wines. The estate is now run by the third generation of the family, and has undergone a gradual transformation in the past few
years, modernising both the winery and the vinification processes. Finca Los Primos comprises a range of excellent value, single varietals. Famiglia Bianchi, Particular and Enzo are each a step up in concentration and depth of fruit, from older and lower-yielding vineyards.
The grapes for the Bianchi Brut come from the Dona Elsa and Las Paredes vineyards, which are situated in the San Rafael zone of
Mendoza at 730 to 790 metres above sea level. The soil is sandy calcareous of alluvial origin.
The grapes for this sparking wine were vinified in the purpose-built, sparkling wine facility constructed by Bianchi outside San Rafael. After
fermentation it is aged on its lees for a further 12 months before release
