The Franciacorta Brut Rosé "Altéra" is made from a cuvée of grapes from two vineyards on the top and the eastern side of a limestone hill: the vineyard on the top has a total exposure, the one on eastern side has an exposure to afternoon sun.
The two plots are located on calcareous soil. In the vineyards on the limestone hill, the stone emerges from the ground and you can see the white and compact limestone named Maiolica, that gives the name to the artisan diggers, the builders and also to the Maiolini family.

The grapes are hand harvested and collected in small boxes for careful transport to the winery. The grapes are removed from their stalks and then placed in tanks for a cold maceration that lasts between 6 and 8 hours at 4 °C. The grapes are then pressed gently and fermented in steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 16-18°C. Altéra means lordly. Production is 9000 bottles; only produced in the best vintages.

General Shipping Policies:
It is ideal for the package to be received on the first delivery attempt especially when the weather is warm or extremely cold.

All alcoholic beverages purchased from this site are sold in the state of Florida and title passes to the buyer in Florida.

Return Policy:
Shipping wine around the country is very expensive. We charge about a third less than what it actually costs us. If you need to return your order (or if the wine gets returned back to us because you were unable to receive it after 3 attempts and you didn't email us to make other arrangements), we need to collect a return shipping fee that is up to double the amount of the shipping you paid. Upon receiving the wine back we will refund for the wine minus the initial shipping cost. In the event that we make a mistake we work with you to fix whatever went wrong at no additional cost to you.
