|In the vineyard||Franciacorta Riserva Lucrezia Etichetta Bianca Castello Bonomi derives from 100% chardonnay grapes, selected from vineyards over 30 years old, situated on the terraces at the foot of Monte Orfano, boasting a soil calcare- ous soil that gives great longevity to its fruit. The yields per hectare are extremely low, guaranteeing optimal maturation and great aromatic concentration, the harvest is early to ensure a balance between acids and sugar.|
|In the cellar||After harvesting, the grapes are gently pressed in a totally inert environ- ment only the first pressing is used to make up this reserve. Fermentation takes place in French oak barriques at a controlled temperature and the lees are continually suspended with the the battonage technique. A portion remains in steel and in spring the blending takes place in spring. After re-fermentation in the bottle, it matures on the lees for 120 months.|

A wine that elevates the Satèn typology to great reserve. A wine for ageing, thanks to its acidic verve, but which already gives of great depth.
A wine of great elegance, starting with the perlage, which in the Satèn particularly fine and elegant. On the nose the chardonnay expresses great concentration of fruit that blends well with a sensation of pods, toasted almonds, hints of honey and white flowers of lime and acacia flowers. In the mouth it is very well balanced, the sapidity being the most persistent sensation accompanied by an acidic and always vertical drink.
