It is bottled at a lower pressure that traditional Franciacorta, or Champagne) - 4.5 ATM as opposed to 6.5-7 ATM. This produces a wine that is silky and smooth on the palate, thus the designation "Saten", which means Satin in Italian.

The special shape of the bottle is patented by the Gatti Family. While unique and beautiful in appearance, it is no gimmick. The flat sides of the bottle increase the ratio of juice in contact with the lees during aging, which increases and accelerates the influence of the lees on the flavor profile of the wine.
