Franciacorta Satèn Millesimato

Satèn is the softest brut of Castello Bonomi’s due to less pressure and its 100% Chardonnay grapes, and as requested also from the law specification.
Satèn also confirms the characteristics of its territory: minerality and sapidity make Satèn a great champion in its class.


Chardonnay 100%

In vineyards

Castello Bonomi Blanc de Blanc, the Franciacorta Brut Satèn is a pure
chardonnay. The 2011 vintage, described by the Franciacorta consortium as a vintage of particular value. It has guaranteed the optimal characteristics in the maturation of the grapes, allowing to exalt perfectly all the best peculiarities of our Chardonnay.

In cellar

The grapes are gently pressed, to extract only the best must, part of the
chardonnay ferments in steel tanks for about 8 months and another part in
small oak barrels. The two wines, after refining, are mixed.
In the “tirage” phase a small portion of syrup is added for the second
fermentation, this reduces the development of the pressure.
The refining in bottle lasts 72 months before the disgorging.

In tasting

Bright straw yellow, illuminated by fine and persistent perlage. Bouquet is
focused on field flowers, chamomile, Fuji apple and yellow plum. Hints of
aromatic herbs, marjoram and fresh almond. Creamy and elegant sip, a good
balance between the fresh taste and the rich structure. Persistent final, with
scents of nut and citrus fruit.


The Satèn most delicate Brut of Castello Bonomi, thanks to the characteristic
100% Chardonnay grapes and the lower pressure, as for the procedural
guideline. It also confirms the characteristics of its terroir: minerality and
complexity make it star of the category.


Satèn is ready for consumption and, if properly preserved, maintains and
improves its quality.


Ideal as an aperitif, it is recommended as Franciacorta throughout the meal
matching with fish menu.
Recommended with fish as scallops or scampi with citrus aroma. Perfect also
with first courses as monkfish ravioli or risotto with queen scallops.
