Ferghettina Franciacorta Saten NV 37.5cl

12.5% abv

Satèn is Italian for ‘satin’ – it specifies a blanc de blancs wine, with a creamy style and less vigorous fizz. This is a perfect example! 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. A lovely aperitif wine, or pair with seafood canapés and swordfish carpaccio.

The Franciacorta wine region is midway between Milan to the west and Lake Garda to the east. The area has been producing high quality, bottle-fermented sparkling wines since the 1950s with local viticulture dating back millennia. Roberto Gatti founded the estate in 1990 after a long career at one of the region’s early pioneer producers, Bellavista, and is now aided by Laura and Matteo, his children. The wines of Franciacorta are produced using the same techniques as Champagne. However, given the region’s more Southerly location the wines produced come from riper grapes leading to lower additions of sugars and a fresher, cleaner style.
