Ronco Calino NV "Saten" Franciacorta, Lombardy, Italy

Paolo and Lara Imberti Radici overlook 10 hectares of organically-farmed single cru Franciacorta vineyards from their lovely hilltop home in Adro. Since 1996, they have embodied the passion and dynamism of the region, striving to produce the most vibrant examples of small grower Franciacorta. Situated less than ten kilometers south of Lake Iseo, the estate’s rolling hills and morainic soils of calcareous gravel and sand are excellently suited to the cultivation of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. 
  • Winemakers: Paolo and Lara Imberti Radici 
  • Farming: Organic
  • Varieties: Chardonnay
  • Soils / Terroir: Calcareous Gravel, Sand 
  • Vinification: The Satèn is hand harvested, with gentle pressing of the whole clusters. The initial fermentation occurs in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, with 30% of the Chardonnay fermenting in aged french oak. 
  • Tasting Notes: Italian for 'silk,' Satèn is Franciacorta's rendition of Blanc de Blancs. Always 100% Chardonnay and Brut in style, Satèn further differs from other Franciacortas in having lower pressure (5 bars of pressure versus the traditional 6) in the bottle, thus giving it a soft mouthfeel. This wine has complexity, freshness and depth, and of course, is lusciously silky across the palate.
