D.O.C.G. Franciacorta SATEN
Lombardy | ITALY
A land of abbeys and priories in the province of Brescia, Franciacorta boasts winemaking traditions that trace back to ancient Roman times. Lying to the south of the Lago d’Iseo and bounded on the west by the Oglio river, Franciacorta is a visual feast of undulating morainic hills that gently slope towards the plain to the south; thanks to its unique position, it enjoys a particularly mild, beneficent climate. With its ancient villages and splendid scenery, Franciacorta is a treasure-trove of magnificent mansions, centuries-old villas, castles, churches, and monasteries.
