"Aromas of white stone fruit, bread crust and a whiff of aromatic herb float from the glass in this soft sparkler. The creamy palate doles out ripe yellow apple, white peach, toatsted hazelnut and a hint of ginger alongside a silky mousse."

2012 Vigna Dorata 'Satèn' Millesimato Brut Franciacorta
Vigna Dorata

100% Chardonnay

SOIL COMPOSITION: Alluvional morain soil of early origin with an extremely sandy structure and very frequent presence of morain stones.

EXPOSURE AND HEIGHT: South-west exposure with light slope, 230 meters above sea-level.

HARVEST TIMING: Mid August sees hand picking of Chardonnay grapes destined to become vintage wine.

VINIFICATION: Gentle pressing of whole grapes by pneumatic press. Only the best must will be used for vintage wine, the characteristics of which will be enhanced by frequent bâtonnage.

FOAM FORMATION: The Chardonnay destined for vintage stays on the yeasts for a minimum of 50 to a maximum of 60 months, when the yeasts express all their best characteristics.

DISGORGING: When the Millesimato has reached the desired fresh and flowery fragrance, disgorging is carried out in order to obtain the vintage wine in the Brut version and with a sugar residue of approximately 4.5 g/l. Further aging of at least 4 months takes place in the cellar.

LENGTH OF TIME ON THE YEASTS: 50 months
