FRANCIACORTA
SATÈN 2015

Summer 2015 was not easy in the vineyard.
Hot days, accompanied by periods of drought, accelerated the ripening of the grapes and made the interpretation of the harvest complex.

In these conditions we have the possibility to evaluate our vine cultivation model.
The not excessive vigor, the well developed root system in depth, the presence in the soil of humus and organic substance , which retain moisture, allow us to reach ,even in the most complicated situations, a well balanced maturity, however accelerated.
This Satèn 2015 turns out to be well balanced, surely more on fineness and elegance than on the great structure.
Soft and well sized, it best expresses the personality of our high hill vineyards in Erbusco.
