Animante

Franciacorta DOCG

It represents the soul of Barone Pizzini because it embodies the living nature of its vineyards. It’s the crowning achievement of a long process of pionering renewal that led Barone Pizzini to become the first organic grower and winemaker in Franciacorta.

Animante is an “organic wine”, the result of the choice towards processing methods, in the countryside and in the cellar, aimed at guaranteeing the maximum representation of the territory. In the vineyard only substances of natural origin are used. Biodiversity is also encouraged to allow for a balance between all forms of life, plant and animal.
