Franciacorta D.O.C.G. SATEN LO SPARVIERE
FRANCIACORTA D.O.C.G. SATÈN
Our Satèn is the crispest wine we produce, since it is made entirely from Chardonnay grapes from our youngest vineyards. This fruit gives our Blanc des Blancs an intensely floral bouquet and sensory qualities typical of the finest Chardonnays, which combine with Satèn’s classic creamy texture to create a palate that is full-volumed and velvet-smooth. Annual production around 20,000 bottles, with a sur lie maturation for a minimum of 24 months.
