Franciacorta Millesimato

Castello Bonomi: Franciacorta Brut Millesimato DOCG

The Millesimato was born from the most scrupulous selection by the chef de cave and an unbridled passion for details, as well as from a chosen vintage.
It takes the gods of heaven will and a full human daily care, in long months that become years, to give voice to the song, harmonious and charming, of a Millesimato Castello Bonomi.

Colour

Millesimato is brilliant golden yellow, with an abundant and tender froth and a long, fine perlage.

Nose

The perfume is very elegant and rich in sensations. It immediately recalls the brioche aroma and the typical smell of freshly baked bread crust. Then you note pleasant floral hints, especially of white flowers – and honey, especially acacia o multifloral honey – that fade in fragrances of wisteria, citrus and hay.

Taste

Millesimato is round, smooth and pleasantly aromatic, with a wide body.
It is really well structured for the important contribution of pinot noir.

After initial fermentation, the Pinot Noir matures for about 8 months in temperature controlled steel tanks.
It is then mixed with the Chardonnay fermented in small oak casks for about 8 months.

Refinement in the bottle

This Cuvée is then refermented and refined in the bottle for a minimum of 40 months before dégorgement.

Food Matching

Millesimato is a Franciacorta for important dates and toasts.
We also recommend it with oysters, truffles, caviar.
Great with bream carpaccio and pink pepper.

Durability

Longevity is one of the best highlights of Castello Bonomi, especially for the Franciacorta Millesimato.
You can enjoy it immediately or maintain it, even for a long time, in your cellar.
Aromas will evolve revealing new pleasant and very complex notes.
