Ferghettina, Franciacorta Saten. 2015

The Gatti family manage 120 hectares of vineyards in six localities within the DOC. Grapes for Satèn are selected from older vineyards in just two village areas. The alcoholic fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tank at controlled temperature between 16 and 18°C with selected yeast. 10% of the base wine finishes alcoholic fermentation in used barriques and matures there for 5 months. Tirage is carried out in spring time of the following year. The wine has 36 months of ageing on the lees. Dosage added is 7 grams/litre (Satèn can only be produced as a Brut style). Satèn also has a lower pressure (less than 4.5 atmospheres) than other Franciacorta wines and this is responsible for its distinctive softness.

Aromas of fresh citrus, with appealing toasty notes. The palate is complex with smoky, flinty notes, a delicious creamy texture, buttery brioche character and a hint of almond and honey. Elegant with a fine mousse and long finish.
