The Franciacorta company was founded in 1901 by Luigi Gozio (grandfather, on their father’s side, of the three brothers Giuliano, Antonio and Luigi, who still run the company) at Gussago, a town in the splendid hilly region of Franciacorta, in the Province of Brescia.

The boys take a malt whisky producer's approach to their vodka using barley grain and pot still single batch distillations.

Other reviews... The rather inexpressive bouquet offers moderately evolved scents of dry grain and sour mash. The palate entry shows more personality as the taste goes oily and semidry; at midpalate a touch of lanolin firms up the flavor profile as the grain becomes more intense. Finishes dry and vegetal. 85-89 points -www.wineenthusiast.com
