Erbusco, is located in the heart of Franciacorta, and is home to a family-owned, boutique winery founded by Enrico Gatti in 1975. Gatti’s first career was in the building industry, but soon became fascinated by the world of Franciacorta. Shortly after that, Gatti decided to make a career change, grow his property, expand his wine knowledge, and put together a team to pursue his new fascination.
The winery started out as a single vineyard, one hectare in size, which was planted in 1975. Since then the winery has grown to include seventeen hectares, 42 acres, under vine. The vineyards are located at 656-820 feet above sea level, where the vines are Guyot-trained and grow on Franciacorta’s classic morainic terrain.
In 1984, the founder’s children, Lorenzo and Paola Gatti, together with the Paola’s husband, Enzo Balzarini, began to collaborate in the winery and released the first vintage, in 1986. In conjunction with this new collaboration and ambition, the underground winery was gradually expanded and stocked with state-of-the-art, computerized and temperature controlled equipment. The winery’s renovation was finally completed in the spring of 2001.
The Gatti family work closely with enologists Domenico Danesi, Andrea Rudelli and Alberto Musatti – who style the wines together with Lorenzo Gatti and Enzo Balzarini – and with agronomist Roberto Messedaglia. Together they have implemented a rigorous program which focuses on carefully orchestrated quality rather quantity.
