Pride of Lombardy

Le Fracce

With a history based on art of craft and tenacity, Le Fracce represents, through its wines, the classicism of a territory and the contemporaneity of the man that today creates them: we love to say Pride of Lombardy.

In 1999 the winemaker Roberto Gerbino took over the helm of the winery beginning a new course in the history of Le Fracce.
Thanks to him, the activity of promotion and dissemination of knowledge in the viticultural field carried out by the Bussolera-Branca Foundation, owner of the Estate, finds a real field of application: Roberto implements in the vineyards and in the cellar the results of the scientific researches that the Foundation has financed over the years – from the use of mushrooms as natural protectors of the cuttings to the induction of resistance to drought – by giving wines a definition of great quality.
Roberto also concentrates his energies on enhancing a vine that is part of the tradition of the area: Pinot Noir. In 2003 two labels dedicated to this noble red wine were born: il “Riserva” and il “Moro”.

In 2015 a new chapter of the estate: Roberto, together with his friend Giorgio Visconti, took over the direct management of the winery, putting himself at stake.
A choice of belonging and courage thanks to which Roberto succeeded in transmitting the philosophy of the Foundation and his vision in wines: excellence, personality, precision, territoriality.

Today the wines of Le Fracce fully represent the ideals of the founder and Roberto’s ideas:

  • promote environmentally friendly viticulture, preserving the health of the land, to be left as a heritage for future generations;
  • develop and preserve biological diversity, favouring natural resources;
  • enhance the local vines;
  • to encourage experimentation in order to improve quality in wine production and favour new creations.

The labels representing the winery today are 12: from the Pinot Noir-based Sparkling Wines to the Whites based on Riesling Renano, Pinot Grigio and Pinot Bianco, as well as to the historical blending Bohemi and Cirgà, through the Pinot Noirs till the indigenous Bonarda and Barbera.
A mosaic of wines that perfectly reflects the history, effervescence and dynamism of Le Fracce.
