Grapes

Chardonnay 100%

 

In vineyards

Blanc de blanc by Castello Bonomi, Franciacorta Brut Satèn is a 100% Chardonnay. The 2014 harvest was characterized by a slow and regular ripening which allowed gradual harvests and made it possible to carry out parceled harvests in line with the technological ripening needs of the grapes destined for a Franciacorta base, giving all the prerequisites for a vintage of greatness and elegance.

 

In cellar

The grapes are gently pressed, to extract only the best must, part of the chardonnay ferments in steel tanks for about 8 months and another part in small oak barrels. The two wines, after refining, are mixed. In the “tirage” phase a small portion of syrup is added for the second fermentation, this reduces the development of the pressure. The refining in bottle lasts 50 months before the disgorging.

 

Tasting notes

Bright straw yellow, illuminated by fine and persistent perlage. Bouquet is focused on field flowers, chamomile, Fuji apple and yellow plum. Hints of aromatic herbs, marjoram and fresh almond. Creamy and elegant sip, a good balance between the fresh taste and the rich structure. Persistent final, with scents of nut and citrus fruit.

 

Plus

The Satèn most delicate Brut of Castello Bonomi, thanks to the characteristic 100% Chardonnay grapes and the lower pressure, as for the procedural guideline. It also confirms the characteristics of its terroir: minerality and complexity make it star of the category.

 

Pairings

Ideal as an aperitif, it is recommended to match Franciacorta with fish dishes. Recommended with seafood such as scallops or scampi with citrus aroma. Perfect with first courses as monkfish ravioli or risotto with queen scallops.
