Franciacorta Donna Cora Satèn Marchese Antinori 2011
Producer: Tenuta Montenisa
Wine Critic & Score: Wine Advocate – 92 Points
Not only Prosecco: in Italy they also make wonderful examples of “traditional method” sparkling wines and Franciacorta is their very best area for this style of bubbles. Antinori was a pioneer: they released their first “Gran Spumante” in 1908 in Tuscany, before moving to Franciacorta in 1999.
Satèn is a unique style and it delivers a distinctive silky texture. Donna Cora is made only in exceptional vintages: a wine of great elegance that can be enjoyed throughout a meal.
