Food & Wine, December 2017: Franciacorta

The moment I read the pitch, I knew immediately that I wanted to write about Franciacorta. How could there be an Italian sparkling wine I didn’t know about?! Designated by a denominazione di origine controllata (DOC), Franciacorta is more stringently managed than Champagne…and, for what it’s worth, infinitely more excellent than overproduced Prosecco.

Such a pleasure to visit the region, meet its winemakers and watch the story come to light on the pages of Food & Wine with glorious photos by Nicole Franzen.
