Franciacorta DOCG Satèn Ronco Calino
Ronco Calino's Franciacorta DOCG Satèn is obtained from 100% Chardonnay grapes, harvested by hand in the second decade of August, with careful selection of the bunches before soft pressing. The first fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 15-16 °C. Abot 30% of Chardonnay grapes ferments in French oak barrels. The second fermentation is carried out through the Metodo Classico dictate, with a low percentage of liquer de tirage to obtain a finer and creamy perlage, Satèn exactly. The wine completes its aging on the lees for at least 36 months before disgorgement.
Straw-yellow colour with light greenish hues. Continuous and persistent perlage; fine and compact foam. The bouquet underlines ripe fruit aromas, such as pineapple, pear, Fuji apple, peach, with a slight vegetal-balsamic vein (menthol basil, chamomile, aniseed), and white flowers notes (citrus, magnolia, acacia, honeysuckle). In the background there are more spicy notes (coriander seeds and pink pepper), together with pan brioche, almond and acacia honey hints. Excellent consistency and harmony on the palate. The innate fresh acidity goes perfectly with the sweet structure of the wine; indisputable finesse. In the aftertaste you'll perceive fruity-citrine notes with candied lemon peel flavour in the finish. We suggest serving it at a temperature of 8-10 °C.
