Gold Medal Winner at the International Wine Challenge in London (click here to see the awards).
An all-Chardonnay cuvée that rests for 36 months on the lees. It is 'Satèn', so is bottled at low pressure, at around 4.7 bar (it's more like 5.8 - 6.0 bar for regular Franciacorta), and with 8g/l of residual sugar. Very fresh, with a touch of cream and brioche on the nose, but also golden apples and hints of toast. The palate has a soft creaminess, the softness and ripeness suggest sweetness, but it is dry, striking the palate with a fresh, lemony zestiness and acidity and a real tang and good intensity.
