The brothers Federico and Silvia Stefini formally found and lead the project and the cellar of 1701 today.

The production of 1701 Vintage is limited edition, because this Franciacorta is the result of a patient and scrupulous selection of the best Chardonnay and Pinot Noir harvested in the Brolo and Collina vineyards. Only the best of grapes and only in the best years.
