What do we mean by these definitions? Click HERE to find out!
The Franciacorta Satèn Brut from Ricci Curbastro is a wine made entirely from 100% Chardonnay grapes, grown in the municipalities of Capriolo and Iseo in Franciacorta. The wine undergoes fermentation in oak barrels and a subsequent bottle re-fermentation for at least 40 months, contributing to its unique bouquet. The color is a clear and shining straw yellow. On the nose, it presents mature fruity notes, spices, and yeasts that evoke biscuity and almond-like notes. On the palate, it is of great elegance, with body and structure, and a slight acidity that enlivens it. This wine pairs well with an entire meal, from aperitifs to cheeses, and is ideal with fish and white meats.
