Satèn

Roundness, delicacy and creaminess make Satèn Santa Lucia so exclusive.

Satèn is the most elegant expression of the territory; it is obtained from a selection of Chardonnay grapes and made sparkling by fermentation of less sugars, giving it balance. It is then aged for at least 24 months.

For the second fermentation, the wine intended for the Satèn is characterized by a lower added sugar in the liqueur de triage compared to Brut (18g / l compared with 24g / l of Brut). Which results in lower gas development, with greater delicacy of taste and finesse of the foam. Bottle aging on the lees for a period of 24 months in cellars at a constant temperature of 12-15° C.
