Biondelli | Franciacorta Brut 'Saten'
Pink grapefruit citrus and white pepper emerging from the glass with fine light bubbles and slightly deeper gold in colour than the Brut. Richly layered, with spiced fruits, custard and a bitter orange finish. Needs food, would pair with grilled fish and an insalata mista.
The centre of this family wine estate lies in a gorgeous 16th century farmhouse located in front of the historic medieval castle of Bornato (today’s villa Orlando) and at the inception of the charming Longarone Valley, settled near the village of Bornato, in the province of Brescia.
These days the ancient farmhouse has been completely restored and developed with the construction of an underground wine cellar. This modern structure is perfect to vinify the different types of grapes grown on their Estate with the main focus on Chardonnay for Franciacorta Brut and Satèn Brut.
Today, very much a family affair, Carlottavio Biondelli, along with his wife Mariella and his sons Francesco and Joska, run the business with passion and devotion.
100% chardonnay sourced from "Nave", "Paini", "Stazione" vineyards 8 hectares in Bornato di Cazzago San Martino | Organically certified | Aged for 42 months in the cellar | Made with a lower bar of pressure sitting at 4 bar.
