Franciacorta Satèn 2015
Wine Making Techniques
This nectar is 100% Chardonnay. The grapes are manually harvested. The vinification takes place in steel and then the divine juice ages sur lie for 36 months. Salute!
In the glass the wine has a lemon color. The intensity is pale. The pèrlage is persistent and quite fine. At the nose, the flavor intensity is medium, with scents of white flowers, hints of lemon and pear. The three years spent on the lees donate feeble perfumes of brioche and biscuit. Notes of wet stone and flint give a quite sharp and pleasant minerality.
In the mouth, the wine is dry with high level of acidity. The intensity is medium plus with aromas of citrus, pear and a feeble almond. The texture is delicate and the flavor lasting is medium.
I know I should not look a gift horse in the mouth, but I am sure my friend, with the second biggest head I’ve ever seen, won’t feel hurt after the review. This nectar is a quite pleasant Franciacorta, but it is very simple. The aromatic palette reveals hints of citrus and scents of white flowers, but no more than that. The secondary aromas, that should have developed during the 36 months spent on the lees, are very shy. I like its texture. Overall, not too bad for an aperitivo, if you have run out of Peroni.
