from middle ten days of August to the first ten days of September.
9,000 kg of grapes per hectare with 55% must yield, equivalent to 6,600 bottles per hectare.
gentle, gradual pressing of clusters with fractioning of the must; alcoholic fermentation in steel vats.
assemblage of the cuvée in the spring following harvest. Second fermentation in the bottles and maturation sur lie for a minimum of 24 months followed by an additional 2 months after disgorgement. The lower overpressure in the bottles (5 atmospheres) typical of Satèn endows it with a creamy elegance.
soft, creamy mousse with long-lasting cordon around the glass; fine, lingering bead.
elegant, rich and multi-layered with fragrances of peach, apricot and tropical fruit, gradually more emphatic, before yielding to notes of candied citrus fruit.
tangy acidity and savoury avours with a full, firm structure. The clean-cut, lingering finish complements a wine of rare pleasure.
perfect as an aperitif, it is an ideal pairing with light risottos and fish dishes. Recommended with Sauris, Parma or San Daniele prosciutto and with medium-matured cheeses.
Alcohol 12.5% Vol, residual sugar 8g/l, total acidity 6.5g/l, pH 3.16.
