Bellavista's Brut Saten is a creamy and elegant classic method, which by virtue of its constant level of quality has carved out an important place for itself in the world of Franciacorta, and more generally of Italian sparkling wines. Vittorio Moretti is one of those names that a wine enthusiast cannot ignore, having given life, initially almost as a game, to a reality capable of reaching the heights of Italian sparkling wine and becoming a brand known throughout the world. Chardonnay, the main local grape, and Pinot Noir are interpreted in a modern way, thanks to a state-of-the-art cellar and the use of small barrels for ageing, as in the case of Saten.
Bellavista's Franciacorta Saten is made exclusively from white grapes of the same vintage, in this case pure Chardonnay. Another particular characteristic of Saten is the bottle pressure, which must be below 5 bar. The result is a silkier, velvety sparkling wine with a fine, less perceptible perlage. Coming from the Chardonnay vines with the best exposure, the grapes are meticulously selected first in the vineyard and then in the cellar. Maturation of the base wines takes place in small white oak barrels, which are then assembled for frothing. Extremely limited production, for a bubbly that has been an emblem of sensuality and seduction since 1984, the first year of production.
As soon as it is poured into the glass, Bellavista's Saten denotes an abundant, creamy foam and a perlage of rare finesse. On first sniff, it opens on floral notes of peach and elderflower, not sparing hints of dried fruit, such as hazelnut. The profile, rich and varied, is complemented by notes of pastry that entice one to taste. The taste is pure silk, with a feminine grace for the way it enters on tiptoe, without hiding a persuasive and soft material that fades on the trace of a refined salinity. Balance, class and elegance come together in a bottle that is suitable for celebrating, or for indulging in a satisfying experience. Revitalising tonic.
