Animante is the first Franciacorta with a percentage of Erbamat. This goal is the result of years of studies, trials and investments concerning this ancient native vine of Brescia, characterized by its high acidity and low sugar content. The first evidence of Erbamat dates back to a work written in 1564 by the Brescia agronomist Agostino Gallo and then disappearing from all the maps and vineyards for almost 500 years. In 2008, We planted the first hectare from which three wines were born called “Tesi”: Tesi 1, Tesi 2 and Tesi 3, each with a different percentage of Erbamat within them. To be classified Franciacorta the maximum percentage of Erbamat present in the assembly cannot exceed 10 %, although it has been indispensable to understand the behaviour of this particular vine. The choice to cultivate Erbamat has two main objectives: to better characterize Franciacorta and to respond to the climate changes particularly felt in the last 30 years.
