Origin: Lombardia, Italy.
Franciacorta is a small wine-producing area in Lombardia, Italy and its DOCG (controlled and guaranteed designation of origin) wine Franciacorta is widely regarded as Italy's finest sparkling wine. Franciacorta Satèn is the product of the intuition of some producers who in the mid '80s began producing a Franciacorta using only white grapes and shortening the period of fermentation, which resulted in lowering the atmospheric pressure in the bottle and made the wine slightly less effervescent but gave it a more refined taste. This excellent wine comes from soft-pressed hillside Chardonnay grapes grown at higher altitudes. Delectably creamy, with subtle minerality and fragrant aromas of fresh almonds and delicate buttery notes. Best served at 12° C.
