Bellavista Franciacorta Gran Cuvee Saten Brut 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes used for this Cuvée come entirely from high hill vineyards, which are located in the heart of the best exposures and are all east facing. A combination of the ancient ‘blanc de blancs’ tradition and the elegant and delicate soul of the Franciacorta terroir. A thought that materialises in the effervescence of the finest and most musical perlage. In rare vintages, a storm of stars at dawn. This is a mystery that still surprises us to this day, when a vintage and a harvest display those exquisite traits that enable us to forecast a particular penchant of Chardonnay grapes towards the creation of this amazing type of Franciacorta. Each time this small miracle takes place, we take every care and attention in the selection of the grapes, in the ageing process in small white oak casks and finally in the blending, which must highlight its enchanting refinement and exquisite elegance. Like anything rare, the Satèn is produced in extremely limited quantities. The grapes used are 100% Chardonnay TASTING NOTES Bellavista Satèn welcomes us with a plentiful and creamy mousse that stands out for its perfect and continuous head. Its perlage is extremely fine and persistent and the quivering lines of pearls are very clear, thin and well-distributed. The colour is straw yellow with slight golden tinges. The scent is intense and soothing, and opens up into a complex and exquisite bouquet of peach blossom, citrus fruit, honey and hazelnuts. The flavour comes forth agreeably, gracing us with feelings of tenderness and grace: the eternal woman that advances with elegance and refinement, always soft and enticing. The freshness that underlines the perfect maturity of the fruit comes in to its own with its perfect natural balance.
