The smooth elegance of this version makes it a perfect companion for aperitifs. It is also ideal with delicate risottos and fish dishes. Try it with Sauris, Parma or San Daniele prosciutto and medium-aged cheeses.


GRAPES

Chardonnay (100%) from the best vineyards in the 19 municipal areas of Franciacorta. 

HARVEST PERIOD

From middle ten days of August to the first ten days of September.

VINIFICATION

Gentle, gradual pressing of clusters with fractioning of the must; alcoholic fermentation in steel vats.

MATURATION

Assemblage of the cuvée in the spring following harvest. Second fermentation in the bottles and maturation sur lie for a minimum of 24 months followed by an additional 2 months after disgorgement. The lower overpressure in the bottles (5 atmospheres) typical of Satèn endows it with a creamy elegance.


SENSORY CHARACTERISTICS

APPEARANCE: soft, creamy mousse with long-lasting cordon around the glass; fine, lingering bead

COLOUR: intense straw-yellow colour.

BOUQUET: elegant, rich and multi-layered with fragrances of peach, apricot and tropical fruit, gradually more emphatic, before yielding to notes of candied citrus fruit.

PALATE: tangy acidity and savoury flavours with a full, firm structure. The clean-cut, lingering finish complements a wine of rare pleasure.


PAIRINGS

Perfect as an aperitif, it is an ideal pairing with light risottos and fish dishes. Recommended with Sauris, Parma or San Daniele prosciutto and with medium-matured cheeses.


SERVING TEMPERATURE 

6-8 °C.
