Slow Wine 2018

Life – Castello Bonomi, built at the end of the 1800s in liberty style, stands between the vineyards of this company, since 2008 owned by the Paladin family. We are at the base of the Monte Orfano, one of the most beautiful areas of Franciacorta, between steep and terraced vineyards, which in the past decades have were abandoned for processing difficulties. Today they are reborn, thanks to the great competence and the direction of Luigi Bersini, Chef de Cave of the company since 1985.
 
Vineyards – the vineyards are located within 500 meters from the cellar. In the main body, of 15 hectares, and around the site,the altitude is between 170 and 220 metres, and includes the famous “CruPerdu”, so called because it was abandoned for its steep which made it difficult to handle. The oldest vineyard dates back to 1984 and is made all of Pinot Nero grapes; the youngest parcels are 2008. With the 2018 harvest Castello Bonomi will certificate Biological.
 
Franciacorta Brut Cruperdu Riserva 2008-Great Wine (3.000 bt) surprised us with a rich and complex nose, with notes of pastry and candied citrus; the mouth is corresponding, elegant and full of taste, with great persistence.
 
Franciacorta Brut Gran Cuvée (20.000 bt) is full of juice and grit, with a keen impulse that draws another sip.
 
 Franciacorta Brut Rosé (8.000 bt) offers intriguing scents of red fruits and balsamic herbs;pleasant to the palate and in mouth.
