In 1995, agronomists Maria Luisa Santus and Gianfranco Pagano took up the challenge of devoting themselves full-time to winegrowing in the Franciacorta region, making use of advanced scientific know-how. Their goal was to produce exclusively Franciacorta wine.

In the space of three years, they planted about 60.000 vines over an area of 10 hectares and they now take personally care of vineyard management.
The Santus philosophy is based on a firm belief that a small wine grower’s mission must be to protect nature’s diversity and its many nuances, by rejecting standardization in any form.

In order to emphasize the strong vine-climate-terroir bond, no cuvée wines are produced and only single-vintage wines are bottled.

Harvesting occurs quite late into the season, giving all Franciacorta Santus wines a mineral character, complexity and structure combined with great drinkability.

Santus Franciacorta selection includes Franciacorta Brut (Chardonnay & Pinot Noir blend), Saten (100% Chardonnay), Rose (100% Pinot Noir), Dosaggiozero ('0' added sugar, the driest of the range), and the cru wine 'Essenza'.
