Mirabella ‘Saten’ Franciacorta Brut NV
Winemaker of Mirabella, Teresio Schiavi moved to Franciacorta in 1978 and decided with a friend Giacomo Cavalli to open a winery. Mirabella was born in 1979, originally a small company producing a tiny amount of high quality sparkling in the old textile mill, which with time and persistence has become one of the leading Franciacorta producers. Composed entirely of Chardonnay, this wine is delicate and intense, with prevalent aromas of honey, banana and vanilla cake. On the palate it is soft, complex and enveloping, persistent refreshing acidity, the finish is refined and elegant. The power of this wine makes it an ideal match with stronger cheeses.
