Freccianera, Franciacorta Saten Brut, Fratelli Berlucchi, 2011 MAGNUM
This excellent wine has just won Best Franciacorta 2020 at the Tom Stevenson Champagne & Sparkling Wines Award, the most prestigious award for sparkling wines globally.
Fratelli Berlucchi have been the pioneers of Franciacorta but still run their estate as a family business. Production is very limited as the focus of the family is on producing Franciacortas of uncompromising quality.
The Saten is a Blanc de Blanc (100% Chardonnay) and is fermented for 40 months in the bottle. The 2011 is an amazing vintage and now at almost 10 years of ageing it's at the peak of its quality.
We are lucky to have the last few bottles in the UK of this incredible Magnum.
