Bellavista Franciacorta Saten 2016
Satèn is the most delicate and elegant of the Franciacorta, made only in the best years from 100% chardonnay grapes from higher altitude vineyards. The selection of the bunches is meticulous, to say the least, as is the slow maturation in small white oak barrels. Once assembled, the cuvée spends 4 more years in the cellar.
On the eye: A rich foam and extremely fine pérlage.
