Tasting Note: 

La Valle 'Satèn', a masterpiece of elegance, the definition of Franciacorta 'Satèn', a name that evokes the delicacy of silk, is a marriage of only white grapes - Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco. A lovely fine and delicate mousse with crushed almond and lemon aromas. A soft and balanced palate that is fresh and refined. A Franciacorta of real finesse.
