Società Agricola
Tenuta Ambrosini
Lombardy, Italy

Franciacorta protected and controlled area is made up of 19 towns in the Brescia province in Lombardy, Italy, with production in only 121 wineries.Tenuta Ambrosini is an independent family winery run by the Ambrosini family, in the 3rd generation dedicated to viticulture.

Grapes used for Franciacorta production are harvested by hand, and the juice is fermented in stainless-steel tanks or in oak barrels. The following spring, this “base wine” is blended and bottled, with the bubbles being created as a by-product of a second fermentation in the bottle. The CO2 produced is trapped in the bottle and is dissolved into the wine. Before the wine can be sold, it must be aged for a minimum of 18 months.

Satèn wines are brut only and can only be made with Chardonnay and a maximum of 50% Pinot Blanc with a minimum of 2 years aging. Vintage Franciacorta must contain 85% of a single vintage and an aging period of 30 months on the lees, which gives the wine better texture with toasted bread and brioche notes.

Vinum Masters Franciacorta Satèn Millesimato is a vintage Franciacorta that showcases the finest of Franciacorta winemaking.
