Filippo Bartolotta

Lingering and persistent perlage, a soft and creamy Franciacorta style. Very ripe fruit, pineapple and candied ginger. Gingerbread man and smooth, vanilla bakery. Exactly what you would expect from a great Saten: generous with lots of volume and craminess. In the end a good acidity, lime and tangerine peel, very aromatic and also easy to drink by itself. Good paired with Rosotto alla Milanese, try it out also with sushi.

JAMES SUCKLING

Green mangoes and papaya are a nice complement to the croissant and tart notes. Nicely layered but balanced on the palate, knocking off a well-executed sequence of bubbles and pithy lemons.

Kerin O’Keefe

Enticing scents of white spring blossom, orchard fruit and a whiff of pastry take center stage on this elegant sparkler. Made entirely with Chardonnay, the graceful palate doles out white peach, yellow apple, lemon and a hint of brioche alongside bright acidity and a silky perlage. KERIN O’KEEFE

FRANCIACORTA

BERLUCCHI ’61 SATÈN

Elegant, refined

The smooth elegance of this version makes it a perfect companion for aperitifs. It is also ideal with delicate risottos and fish dishes. Try it with Sauris, Parma or San Daniele prosciutto and medium-aged cheeses.

Elegant, rich and multi-layered with fragrances of peach, apricot and tropical fruit, gradually more emphatic, before yielding to notes of candied citrus fruit.
