A family of agriculturalists in Franciacorta narrates its own universe: a farm estate and a wine cellar, a wine museum, an agritourism, and antiques from the Granaio Verde.
Franciacorta Brut Satèn Ricci Curbastro is 100% Chardonnay.
The fermentation in oak barrels is followed in the spring by the “en tirage” process, with the start of a slow second fermentation in bottles, according to the traditional Franciacorta method. The bottles are stacked for at least 40 months (48 months total from harvest), ensuring its unmistakable bouquet, which is due to contact with and the autolysis of the yeast. After the disgorgement stage, with the addition of a very dry liqueur de dosage (7g/l), the Franciacorta undergoes another fining period in the wine cellar for several months.
Color: straw yellow, clear, and brilliant. Nose: to the nose, it presents a substantial presence of ripe, thick, and dense fruity notes that mix with spicy aromas and yeasts, which are reminiscent of toasty, almond notes. Palate: of great elegance, it presents again to the palate the same olfactory sensations sustained by body and structure, enlivened by a slight acidity.
Accompanies any meal, from appetizers to cheeses; ideal with fish and white meats
Serve at 10°C ( 50 ºF)., preferably in a bucket with water and ice, uncorking the bottle when ready to serve, using slim glasses that are not too narrow.
About Saten: the Satèn typology, reserved solely for Franciacorta, took its name from the silk, which was once produced here and, as silk, it appears "soft" (round) and "has the stuff" (consistent or full-bodied). In these two adjectives is described the magic of the Franciacorta Satèn Brut.
