Bellavista Franciacorta Gran Cuvée Satèn Brut NV

Winemaker's Notes:

*92 points - Wine Advocate* The Bellavista estate produces Italy’s finest sparkling wines. Founded by Vittorio Moretti in the early 1970s, the 200 hectares sit in the western part of the Franciacorta zone in a natural amphitheatre. The ideal environment for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay is created from the stony glacial soil, which gives the wines an expressive character. The Gran Cuvée Satèn is a special cuvee of limited production that is a result of a vigorous selection process to produce a sparkling wine of outstanding quality. Persistent and creamy, this straw yellow wine reveals an intense, attractive and complex bouquet, reminiscent of peach blossom, honey and hazelnuts. This sparkling wine is feminine, gentle and graceful; a fantastic, delicate bubbly to celebrate with family and friends. "Shows gorgeous depth and inner perfume as it opens up in the glass. Texturally brilliant, the Saten impresses for its overall balance and impeccable harmony. Brioche, juicy pears and apricots wrap around the plush, textured finish." 92 points - Antonio Galloni for Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, Feb 2012
