“5 GRAPES” award to Lucrezia Etichetta Nera and Dosage Zéro

It’s official: also this year Castello Bonomi wins two 5 GRAPES awards in the Bibenda 2017 guide, essential reference point for wine critics at national and international level.

The satisfaction of Lucia, Carlo and Roberto Paladin, passionate producers is great: “At Castello Bonomi extraordinary grapes born, with an exceptional and continuous quality in the different vintages and in different types of Franciacorta wine.

Last year, CruPerdu 2004 and Rosé Riserva 2006 conquered Bibenda’s podium. This year we do the bis with other protagonists: Lucrezia Etichetta Nera 2006 (which wins the award for the second time, after the 2014 edition) and Dosage Zéro 2009. These are the two wines symbol of our production: two major challenges of the chef de cave Luigi Bersini, in search of an immaculate perfection. The 5 Grapes are the culmination of a great job, made of dreams, passion, investments in energy, in time, in the projects on the ground, in the vineyard and in the cellar. We are proud to work with a team of experienced and involved men, who have devoted heart, skill and all their enthusiasm to the beautiful Franciacorta wines we produce at Castello Bonomi”. A team that has won a double award, as it emphasizes Bibenda’s patron Franco Ricci: “As a friend, happy to announce a good news, I would like to personally communicate the important double results obtained by your company”.

Castello Bonomi has made quality without compromises the point of arrival to gain at any cost. It’s a quality that can be measured: through the protracted maturation on the yeasts (over 70 months for Lucrezia and over 50 months for Dosage Zéro), through the freshness that is maintained over the years, and through the extraordinary longevity, with a guaranteed and certified quality for over 10 years from the disgorging.

The award ceremony will be held on Saturday 19th November in Rome, in the beautiful surroundings of the Rome Cavalieri Hotel, headquarter of Bibenda and Fondazione Italiana Sommelier, with a sumptuous gala dinner (programme of the evening here: http://www.bibenda.it/attivita_singola.php?id=2286). In this great celebration of Italian wine, Lucrezia Etichetta Nera and Dosage Zéro will be presented in tasting to all guests with the other winning wines.

Castello Bonomi, already known to the classic method lovers, enjoys now the 5 Grapes award and toasts to the success of Bibenda and FIS, inviting all the friends in Rome and the Lazio region to take part to the countless activities proposed (http://www.bibenda.it/fis-iscrizione-soci.php).
