The territory

The territory of Franciacorta with its morenic hills extends to the south of Lake Iseo, between the river Oglio on the west and the river Mella on the east, including the towns of Adro, Capriolo, Cellatica, Cortefranca, Erbusco, Gussago, Iseo, Monticelli Brusati, Ome, Paderno Franciacorta, Paratico, Passirano, Provaglio d'Iseo, Rodengo Saiano, Cazzago San Martino, Coccaglio, Cologne and Rovato.

Several hypotheses have been formulated upon the origin of the name Franciacorta, but the most likely seems to be that according to which the name derives from the presence of monastic courts in this area that enjoyed in the Middle Age special exemptions from taxes on trade and were therefore considered franchae curtes, that is to say duty-free courts.
The name "Franzacurta" appeared for the first time in the municipal statute of Brescia of 1277 and indicated since then an area dedicated to the production of quality wine.
From these place-names to the name Franciacorta it's a short step.

Over the centuries, wine production has been a strong point for the local economy, as well as a moment of cohesion and social identification with the territory, until, in 1967, adopting a productive tradition handed down from generation to generation, Franciacorta obtained the DOC status (Controlled Designation of Origin) and later, in 1995, the DOCG status (Controlled and Guaranteed Designation of Origin).



The winery

The winery was founded in 1913 by the grandfather of the present owner and winemaker Domenico De Filippo. Since then, four generations of De Filippo have succeeded in the production of fine wines. The experience handed down from the foundation to the present has allowed the company to guarantee its customers, who have become over the years more and more attentive and demanding, the utmost care and the best results in making wine.

The ancient cellars for the vinification and aging of the wines are located at the foot of Mount Orfano, in the ancient village centre of Coccaglio, which was a medieval castle, built on the ruins of the ancient Roman castrum.
As they ensure conditions of constant temperature and humidity during the year, they have always been used for the conservation of the wines of Franciacorta.
A tradition that Montorfano De Filippo enshrines jealously, welcoming in those cellars, with unchanged care and passion, the different vintages of Franciacorta for their best refinement.

The company's brand reproduces the portrait of Luca Marenzio, a famous composer and acclaimed author of renaissance madrigals, born in Coccaglio in 1553 just in the place where the winery is located. In his honour Montorfano De Filippo has baptized its Franciacorta of excellence "Franciacorta Satèn Luca Marenzio".
