Franciacorta Satèn Millesimato 2015

Grapes

Chardonnay 100%

In vineyards

Blanc de blanc by Castello Bonomi, Franciacorta Brut Satèn is a 100% Chardonnay. Vintage 2015 was characterized by a winter and spring with little rain and rather high temperatures, which led to a sprouting in advance compared to the average vintages. These conditions proved to be particularly favorable for this type of Franciacorta: higher ripening levels and an excellent degree of acidity, thanks to the early harvest, contributed to the perfect production of this refined and elegant Satèn.

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 50 months before the disgorging.

Tasting notes

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.

Plus

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.

Pairings

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.
