| 93 points, James Suckling: 'Aromas of apples, almonds and citrus follow through to a full body and a dense palate with lots of dried fruits and pie crust. Long and flavorful. A blend of chardonnay and pinot bianco. 48 months on yeast. Drink now.' Tasted: 18-Nov-2015
Smooth, luxurious, ripe, soft, rounded. Evokes the enchanting sensuality of the woman of one's heart. One of those wines that thrill the senses. Satèn, with the femininity and elegance of silk, is a special interpretation of a Franciacorta: a felicitous marriage of white grapes only. And a little secret: during tirage, when sugars and yeasts are added to initiate second fermentation in the bottle, Satèn is given less sugar. Finally, lengthy refinement enhances gentle elegance in every single bottle. Delicious as an aperitif and excellent as a conversation wine. Dosage 2.0 grams of sugar per litre.
