Arzente Bellavista Wine Distillate Cl 70
Arzente, an ancient variant of the voice “ardente,” is a term coined by Gabriele D’Annunzio in the 1930s to refer by its Italian name to wine distillate or, more commonly called, “brandy.”
Bellavista’s Arzente is the result of a discontinuous distillation of only Chardonnay wines performed in the original Charentais copper stills. These wines are chosen from within a small number of selections from Franciacorta and are aged in small white oak barrels.
The elegant and inimitable bouquet is the result of the combination of several distillates whose patient aging ranges from a minimum of 7 years up to over 16 years.
The aroma is refined, light vanilla and deliciously complex cocoa, floral, elegant ripe fruit, fig, plum, hazelnut,tobacco.
The taste is extremely silky with the characteristic sweetness and smoothness of great brandies. It reveals notes of honey, cinnamon, bitter chocolate and Piedmontese nougat.
