“Saten” means “satin” and it’s the perfect name to describe a concept of a fresh and soft bubble that contains an explosion of aromas and fragrances without being overpowering. A beautiful wine from the packaging to its bottle content.

When you try a “Saten” wine, it is like trying the real heart of Franciacorta. A memorable wine that thrills me every time. Each sip has a velvety and soft sensation in the month, just like touching satin feels like.

Tasting

The colour is a bright straw yellow, with a fine and persistent “perlage”. The nose is fresh and elegant, with unmistakable aromas of hawthorn, bread crust, balsamic notes, hints of pippin apple, dried figs and peanuts. Supple in the mouth, but not sweet, it has a fresh, pleasant flavour. The finish is long, assertive and very enjoyable.

Food pairing

Pairs well with crustaceous, antipasti seafood or salumi.
