Ferghettina


producer_75

Roberto Gatti’s Ferghettina is in a prime location close to Lake Iseo and has managed to combine excellence, pioneering research and a warm-hearted family feel.  Roberto, wife Andreina and their children, Laura and Matteo, are the components of a young, enthusiastic, friendly and forward-thinking team whose growth has always been inevitable.

Ferghettina was founded in 1991, when Gatti left his winery job to strike out on his own.  He named his new winery after the location.  His first Franciacorta Brut was first released in 1992 under the Ferghettina label.  People in Franciacorta have always held him in great esteem and he began slowly leasing more and more land with long leases (20-25 years), which he replanted to painstaking standards, eventually running a total of 180 hectares (445 acres), split into nine Franciacorta districts.  The family preferred investing in top-quality equipment and vineyard management, rather than land at that time. Not to mention the state-of-the-art, 64,600-square-foot new winery in Adro, designed by Laura’s architect husband. Though finished in 2005, it perfectly fits in with the landscape. It looks like a traditional farmhouse gently embraced by sloping hills in view of Lake Iseo. The Gatti family is supported by a staff of fifteen and yearly sparkler production is around 350,000 bottles.  The wines are styled by Roberto himself with Laura and Matteo, who are both enologists.  In fact, starting with the 2007 vintage, the Ferghettina Rosé and Milledì, come in a special bottle invented by Matteo Gatti, with a square rather than round base, that looks like a rising pyramid with flat interior sides so that during their three years on lees, the yeasts have two and a half times greater contact with the wine compared to traditional, round bottles.  This leads to even greater finesse, flavors and aromas not to mention, originality, beauty and cutting-edge functionality.
