As We match
Risotto seasoned with Satèn
Franciacorta Satèn wine produced by the Ambrosini farm has been awarded the best Franciacorta Satèn title by the Italian Sommelier association. Its freshness and creamy texture make it an excellent meal wine.
To celebrate the most popular product of the Ambrosini company, whose production is exclusively done in Franciacorta, we suggest pairing it with the Risotto seasoned with Satèn Ambrosini, a specialty, in which the wine is the sole taste driving ingredient.
A name a face
Lorenzo, first-born of Giovanna and Sergio Ambrosini, named after his grandfather, has the very same passion for wine making of his father. A diploma in agricolture, he represents the new generation and the younger face of the Ambrosini estate.
His cheerful and accommodating personalty and his role inside the family business are similar traits to the emblem of Franciacorta wine making tradition, Satèn wine. The wine has in fact a fresh and gentle taste, is very balanced and creamy. Some say that the name Satèn might derive from the assonance with the Italian word seta (silk): the typical bubbles that, bursting, form a thin thread, almost invisible, like the thread of the precious tissue. The same bond, strong but hard to see, between tradition and innovation, grandfather and grandson.
