Franciacorta DOCG Satèn Millesimato Contadi Castaldi
Franciacorta DOCG Satèn Millesimato by Contadi Castaldi winery is made from 100% Chardonnay grapes. It is a fragrant wine, which immediately seduces you with its originality, presaging an exceptionally fresh taste. The style plays strongly on a quest for harmony between complexity and pleasure, in keeping with the sweetness of expression of the Franciacorta area.
Vinification starts with soft pressing after cold maceration at 17-18 °C. Cold settling and inoculation with selected yeast. Fermentation of 20 days in stainless steel. Partial malolactic fermentation. The first againg lasts about 7 months, partly in steel and partly in barriques, then the wine is bottled for ageing on the lees from 30 to 36 months. Post-disgorgement refinement of about 3-4 months.
The colour is a bright straw, with a fine and persistent perlage. The nose is fresh and elegant, with clear bouquets of hawthorn, bread crust, balsamic notes, hints of apple rennet, dried figs and peanuts. Soft in the mouth, but not sweet, it has a fresh pleasant flavour. The finish is long and dense, with very pleasant flavour. We suggest to serve it at 6-8 °C.

Chosen for you
The name Contadi Castaldi is a synthesis of the ancient history of Franciacorta, its 19 municipalities and their vocation for outstanding agriculture. In 1500, when the Venetian Republic was at the height of its splendour, Franciacorta produced food and wine destined for the tables of princes, kings and rich merchants. For Franciacorta, the beautiful city of Venice was the market of choice for introducing its wines.
