Franciacorta Satén NV
Mirabella website -- click here
A 100% Chardonnay that rolls unexpectedly and surprisingly on the palate. A blend of contrasting aromas where the sweetness of the flowers, honey and exotic fruit intermingle with savoury and stimulating hints. 36 months on lees, its intense golden colour is enhanced by fragrant vanilla yeasty notes. Low gassing and sugary syrup enhance its smoothness, like SATIN, hence the name SATÈN. Pleasantly sharp and good persistence.
