Bianchi Celeste -- Matte vs Gloss

I just learned that Bianchi Celeste comes in two formats: gloss and matte.

I don't really have any questions about gloss, but cognizant of the reported issues with black matte finishes (and seeing them first hand on my loaner) I'm curious about the Bianchi Matte Celeste finish.

Is it as flat and "grainy" as black matte?

Or is it more of a dull, flat gloss?

If more like black matte, is it subject to the same concerns, which seem to be: hard to keep clean (stains!), and the matte becomes shiny over time (if cleaned too vigorously).

Yes, I just learned the 2017 Infinito came in Gloss Celeste while the available 2018 is in Matte Celeste.

Put another way, does the Infinito Matte Celeste look like the Matte Celeste in this photo?

Actually, the more I look at Celeste photos, on Flickr and on the Bianchi site, the more confused I get.

I wonder if there is a standard color naming scheme for Bianchi Celeste variations?
