La Santissima Franciacorta "Club Cuvée" Brut Satèn Millesimato DOCG

Sizes: 750 ml
Alcoholic content: 12.5% vol.
Grapes: Chardonnay (100%)

Vineyards: in Gussago, Franciacorta, DOCG limited area. Special attention is given to the optimization of the landscape, the respect of the territory and the environment. The grapes come from hillside vineyards with clay and limestone loam and loose and gravelly moraine soils, with high-density Guyot training.

Vinification and ageing: the grapes are harvested by hand and placed in 18 kg crates, to keep the bunches perfectly intact during transport to the winery. Immediately after harvesting, the grapes are put into a special press for a soft and gradual crushing, to extract the best part of the juice: the first-pressing must. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with constant control of the fermentation temperatures. For this blanc de blanc, characterized by a base which in part ferments in wooden vessels, the bottling (tirage) takes place in the spring following the harvest with a smaller amount of sugars, in order to obtain less pressure in the bottle, which produces its particularly soft taste. This is followed by ageing on the lees for at least 25 months; after dégorgement, the bottles rest in the winery for a further 5 months.

Tasting notes:
Colour: straw yellow of medium intensity, soft and creamy mousse.
Aroma: intense with scents of exotic fruit, white flowers, pineapple, barley malt biscuits.
Palate: soft, very good freshness and flavour, medium persistent finish recalling fruit and flowers.
Accompaniments: ideal as an aperitif, it accompanies delicate hors d’oeuvres of fish, vegetables and fresh cheeses, pasta dishes with delicate sauces based on vegetables and seasonal vegetables.
