La Valle “Satèn” Franciacorta Brut D.O.C.G.
Price per bottle 0,75l
La Valle, owned by the Pezzola family, is in Rodengo Saiano in the heart of the beautiful hills of Franciacorta. It is located in a region particularly well suited for viticulture, near a famous Olivetan monastery of the 11th century, a few kilometers from Lake Iseo and Brescia in Lombardy. The historic wine-cellar, old and evocative, inside the characteristic family manor dating back to the 1400s is a quiet place of peace and tranquility where the prestigious and exclusive bottles of vintage and reserve wines rest and age; it has now also become a place for receiving visitors and organizing tastings, wine events, and guided tours of the winery. In 2010 La Valle® completed work on their new wine cellar, a model of innovative modern technology, dedicated primarily to the winemaking process. In this way poetry and technique come together and the past and the future meet, each demonstrating its own charms, to create a work of art. La Valle: a fascinating world to discover, full of unique and unforgettable sensations.
It takes its name from the winery’s main property, La Valle (bought by the family’s ancestors in long-ago 1890, as a notary deed of the time demonstrates) which has always been a vineyard.La Valle Satèn, a masterpiece of elegance, the definition of Franciacorta.
