Biondelli Franciacorta Brut Satèn DOCG ~ Sparkling Wine
750ml - Non Vintage
The name 'Satèn' reflects the satiny feel of this traditionally made 100% Chardonnay. Secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle for a minimum of 24 months.
Its pretty, tight bead of bubbles is a gentle effect brought on by using less sugar to stimulate the second, carbonic fermentation; so there is also less 'gas'. A beautifully pure wine, with aromas of ripe pear and white peach stone fruit, elegant notes of dried fruit, honey, hints of lees and superbly balanced palate. Creamy intensity along with great balance of immediate pleasantness and complexity in the finish.
Excellent as an aperitif and an ideal match to elegant cuisine, in particular fish.
