Vinification: Soft pressing of the grapes fermented in steel tanks at controlled temperature (16 °C). At the second fermentation, the base wine intended for satèn is characterized by a lower addition of sugar in the liqueur de triage compared to brut (18g/l against 24g/l of brut); this determines a lower gas evolution, with a higher sensitivity to the taste and refinement of foam.
Aging: Bottle ageing on leaven for a period of 40 months in cellars at the constant temperature of 12-15 °C.
