Satèn D.O.C.G. of Elisabetta Abrami, originates from hand-picked Chardonnay grapes.
Perfectly suitable to complement a whole meal for delicate fish courses, or for an aperitif, thanks to its delicate, creamy taste, which recalls ripe fruit.
Its bouquet evokes bread crust, with toasty scents and a straw-yellow colour and with fine and persistent perlage, which convey golden reflections.
