Our wine has born on the vineyards hills of Ome, near iseo, particularly exposed and breezy, made by Chardonnay grapes. After 7 months for the first fermentation in small stainless steel tanks then for 30 months or so, rest, matures and ages re-fermentation in the bottle with selected yeasts, in the darkness and silence of the cellar.
Our Franciacorta Satèn, bright straw yellow color with golden glares, it is the elegant at the palate and with a very persistent aroma.
Its well-defined personality makes it seductive and absolutely perfect for an aperitif and throughout the meal.
the shape is as original as it is useful for the process of aging in the wine cellar; its greater surface area, in fact, permits more contact between the liquid and the lees, allowing the sediment to release essential substances that enhance the expressive bouquet of our Franciacorta and consequently improve its taste and nose characteristics. The date 1501 marked in relief on the glass, recalls the long history of the Ca’ d’Or brand.
Class “A” white glass for food products.
Decoration: water colours etched on glass by means of a printing technique using steel frames to transfer the colour directly onto the bottle. The colours used are thermally fused and, after cooking at 600/620 °C, the screen printing is permanent. The colours and processing meet standards for use with food products, and are non-toxic. The metallic gold colour of the mask, together with the collar in Bronze, identify the type of wine in the bottle.
Cork: an extremely high-quality achromatic cork made of cork microgranules from raw materials selected to preserve the taste of the wine.
