Grape Variety: Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco
Alcohol: 12.5% Vol
Vinification: As soon as the grapes are picked, using small cases, they are graded and chilled. Each bunch is selected by experienced eyes before visiting our “berry spa”, an exclusive bunch washing and jet spray system that incorporates three soaking vats and a drying tunnel. After crushing in the absence of oxygen, all the musts for base wines ferment in small oak casks. Barrel maturation lasts for just five months to coax out maximum aromatic complexity and expressive power without jeopardising elegance. A pair of flying tanks enables the wines to be gravity-racked from the small oak casks into maturation tanks. Seven months after the harvest, it is time to create the Cuvée. Vintage Collection Satèn 2014 is obtained from a skilful blend of 13 Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco base wines. Less sugar is added than for other Franciacortas, giving the wine a creamy mouth-feel and a particularly soft, elegant sensory profile that is further enhanced by leisurely bottle ageing. Disgorgement takes place in the absence of oxygen using a unique system designed and patented by Ca'del Bosco. The procedure avoids oxidative stress or the need for additional sulphites, making Ca'del Bosco Franciacortas purer, more appealing and longer lived. Finally, every bottle is given an individual marking to ensure its traceability.
Colour: Straw yellow.
Bouquet: Citrus zest, crushed herb, pastry dough and wild herb aromas follow over to the vibrant palate along with lemon, yellow apple and a hint of vanilla.
Taste: Smooth, luxurious, ripe, soft, rounded. Evokes the enchanting sensuality of the woman of one'e heart. One of those wines thar thril the senses. Saten, with the femininity and elegance of silk, is a special interpretation of Franciacorta: a happy marriage of thite grapes only. And a little secret: during tirage, when sugars and yeasts are added to initiate second fermentation in the bottle, is given less sugar. Finally, lengthy refinement enhances gentle elegance in every single bottle
