Pavò Brut DOCG, obtained from grapes coming from the winery’s vineyards, is the classical product of this area of production. A Blanc de Blancs 100% Chardonnay, it expresses a desire to valorise all the best Pavò Franciacorta vineyards such as those in Provaglio d’Iseo: vineyards providing different characteristics which lead to a sparkling wine unique for the completeness of its aroma, elegance and personality.
“Brilliant, bright straw-coloured, long-lasting effervescence. Intensely radiant and solar notes in the bouquet of yellow peach, Stark apple, medlar, and the floral fragrance of dandelion merging with a hint of vanilla and turmeric, closing with almond brittle. Coherent with the palate: creamy and enveloping to the sip, balance is maintained by a well perceived freshness and delicate saltiness; the flavour lingers on gratifying toasted and spicy tones. “Sea bass ravioli on a bed of sesame cream.” (cit. Guida AIS “Vitae”).

Where all things good merge with the beautiful, this is where the story of Pavò Franciacorta begins.
A rich wine, sophisticated and surprising,
very much like a peacock’s plumage.
