Monte Alto Franciacorta


Società Agricola Monte Alto is an artisan enterprise that was born from the passion for wine, land and viticulture, and from the desire to create a natural and not manipulated product, that can express the area of origin through the wine..

In 2014, after several experiences in the wine industry in Italy and abroad, Alberto decides to realize the dream of a life and starts his winery at the foot of Monte Alto, limestone mountain located in the western part of Franciacorta.

More precisely in Clusane, in the extreme north of Franciacorta, the company cultivates three hectares of vineyards, including Pinot Nero and black grapes for red wines. The choice of using Pinot Nero as the main grape for the composition of Franciacorta cuveé, is at the base of the oenological style of the company that intends to express, through this vine, the particular characteristics of its territory.

The proximity to Lake Iseo, the north-east exposure of the vineyards and the composition of the soil are some of the characteristics that define in a decisive way the natural vocation of this corner of Franciacorta.


The desire to create products that best express the characteristics of the territory of Lake Iseo and Franciacorta is the basis of this project.
A limitation of the corrections in the cellar thanks to a scrupulous and targeted care in the vineyard, allows to better express the true potential of the vineyards and therefore of the wines.
The vineyards surrounding the company are affected by the geopedological characteristics of mount Alto, on which the company is located and from which it takes its name.
Monte Alto, characterized by the outcrop of rock formations of marine origin of Jurassic-Cretaceous age, and composed mainly of limestone, marl, marly limestone and flint limestone, produces the distinctive characteristics of the wines.
Furthermore, the sensitivity of the man allows the identification of the territory’s potential, so that it can be expressed in the glass.




Monte Alto grows 3 hectares of vineyards from which the wines of the company are produced. From the management point of view the company adopts minimally invasive techniques both from the agronomic and the wine aspect. An accurate and targeted pruning for each vine, manual management of the entire green phase (pollard, suckering, crop thinning, etc.), careful and expert monitoring of all the phenological stages of the plants, machining under wine without using chemical herbicides. The raw material is then preserved thanks to a minimally invasive enology that would allow the wines to stabilize naturally, reducing to a minimum the use of enological adjuvants. All these aspects allow us to find the necessary balance to express the territory of origin in the glass.

The winery is located at the foot of Monte Alto in Clusane d'Iseo, in a farmhouse built in the early twentieth century.
The particular characteristics of the morainic and tendentially calcareous-clay soil of the mountain generate the uniqueness of the company's wines.
Delicate wines, but at the same time deep and structured, hard but harmonious and balanced. All qualities of a territory that has enormous wine-making potential, that Monte Alto seeks daily to preserve and to express, through constant work in the vineyard, in the glass.
An authentic real context, uncompromising and fueled by passion.
