SATÈN as pleasure principle that knows no bounds. As the immediacy of a taste that unites that which is far and that which is deep. A centripetal force drives the senses towards a crescendo of pleasure, perceived like the silkiness of a fabric, like the suppleness of a cream, like the ethereal reflections of a silvery light. To reach this ideal, which approaches the rarefaction of an archetype, Contadi Castaldi has gathered and contained in a single texture the best fruit from each growing year and each landscape unit of Franciacorta. From the hill of Sottomonte, it has taken the verve of fresh, bright notes, as fine as the early morning air. From the slopes of Erbusco, it has taken all the grace and style that are expressed in warm notes of vanilla and yellow flowers that have just bloomed. The potency of the sunlit limestone slopes and eastern terraces erupts in a warm procession of spices and ripe fruit. A very pleasant nuance of bitter almond closes this subtle, delicate PLEASURE which is unlimited and seeks no limits.
