Location description from owner

The Lombardy region

Franciacorta is distinguished by a unique territorial identity that is defined in equal measure by geography and social-economic demographics. In this regard, it is a unique phenomenon in the greater world of wine.

At the heart of Italy's celebrated Lake District with the petite Lago d'Iseo immediately at its back, and the larger lakes Como and Garda acting as a buffer against the frigid climate of the Italian Alps, Franciacorta occupies an isolated spot of rolling hills, moderate temperatures and calcareous and sandy soils.

Thanks to the imposing mountains to the north and the Pianura Padana plains to the south, Franciacorta experiences dramatic variation between daytime and nighttime temperatures. Sometimes differing by as much as 60? Fahrenheit, this huge variance helps achieve balance between ripeness and acidity in the maturing grape clusters. Gentle breezes from the lakes help mitigate humidity and keep the vines aerated and healthy.

Perhaps more interesting however is Franciacorta's fortuitous position at the center of northern Italy's main economic corridor. The area including Milan (Italy's banking capital) and Brescia (the country's industrial capital) is populated by like-minded entrepreneurs who are characterized by unprecedented unity and a can-do attitude.

The post-war Italian economic miracle has its origins here, and the sparkling wines of Franciacorta are poignantly symbolic of northern Italy's impressive economic strength. It is no coincidence that when local entrepreneurs banded together to envisage a wine region of their own in the 1960s and 1970s they aspired to Champagne. Thanks to sheer willpower, Franciacorta came to be.

Even the name, Franciacorta, reflects the area's longstanding entrepreneurial spirit. Said to come from the Latin francae curtae, the area was an ancient tax free zone along northern Italy's trade routes. First written mention of the name Franzacurta appears in 1277.

Nigoline di Corte Franca

The Villa lies between the idyllic hills and vineyards of Franciacorta. Within a few miles you can reach numerous wine cellars where the famous wine Franciacorta is produced. You can take guided tours and of course taste the wine!
Many of typical restaurants are available in the surroundings. A couple of Miles from the Palace, there is the golf of Franciacorta. Many bike paths between Franciacorta and Lake Iseo. Possibility of renting bicycles at Iseo.
In just 4-5 Km you get to Iseo, beautiful town on the Lake, with the possibility of embarking for the famous Montisola, the largest lake island in Europe, included in the list of "most beautiful villages in Italy"!
On the other side you can extend your view as far as the outskirt of Brescia, the area's major city.
Franciacorta has been described by poets, painters and photographers as “a vision of placid and joyful hills, sunny villages, somptuous palaces, which remind of the famous ancient lineage of the Brescia region…A land covered with vineyards and prestigeous wine cellars".
The Palazzo is located 15 minutes away from the Milan-Venezia highway, so you are within 1 hour drive to Milan and 1 h 30 min. to Venezia.
The location of Palazzo Torri is reserved and exclusive, it's best to get there by car and thus have the ability to move freely.
