Bellavista meaning ‘beautiful view’ in Italian was founded by Vittorio Moretti in the early 1970s.This estate makes Italy’s finest sparkling wines from its own vineyards situated in the western part of the Franciacorta zone in a natural amphitheatre. The glacial soil is full of stones, and provides the ideal environment for the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes used in the production of their Franciacorta.
Bellavista owns 190 hectares of vines in 10 communes within the Franciacorta DOCG. The vineyards have some of the best exposure, character and expressive potential in the area. For the Satèn, fruit is taken from the older, south facing vineyards on the hillsides of the commune of Erbusco.
Straw yellow with a sage hue with fine, persistent and vibrant pearlescent bubbles. The complex bouquet has intense aromas of flowers with peach, citrus, honey and hazelnut notes. On the palate, the wine is elegant, refined and soft, with a freshness and balance that emphasise the excellent quality of the fruit. Satèn will age well for at least five years after the vintage.Additional informations (PDF)
