MARZAGHE FRANCIACORTA SATÈN “PREMIER” DOCG

Delicate nose of white floral, orchard peach, red apple and a palate yielding slightly richer notes of almonds, vanilla spice and fresh baked croissant.  A fine, creamy mousse with a delicate lacy structure that highlights a vein of minerality due to the layered soils in the vineyard. Fresh acidity and a lengthy finish highlight the complexity of this Satèn, influenced by the sub-Alpine and Mediterranean climate.

Fresh acidity and a lengthy finish highlight the complexity of this Satèn, influenced by the sub-Alpine and Mediterranean climate.

Pairings: Oysters, fresh fish or shellfish bring out the mineral and stone fruit notes while the vibrant acidity will cut through creamier risottos and pasta dishes.

About Franciacorta: Franciacorta is a relatively new export for the Italian market, but has quickly garnered the attention of sparkling wine lovers throughout the world as the Italian equivalent to French Champagne.  Produced in the same method as Champagne from France, using the noble Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc varietals, the region only attained DOCG status in 1995; and the first sparkling wine on the scene came from the producer Berlucchi in 1961.  Starting with only 11 producers, currently there are only around 100 Franciacorta producers crafting this world-class bubbly.  Only 11% of the wine from Franciacorta are exported.

About Marzaghe: Born between the Northern Italian peaks of Monte Alto and Monte Orfano in Lombardia near Lake Iseo, the Marzaghe heritage starts with the land, and all of the varietals come from a tiny 6 hectare plot that has been in the family for generations and continues to be managed and cared for by members of the family.  Their focus continues to be on small-lot, hand-crafted and high quality production,  which they have been employing at the estate since the 1960’s.  They limit their production to only Franciacorta DOCG.
