Solicano

Franciacorta, understood as a geographical area, expresses under the name “Curtefranca” a range of red and white wines. Castello Bonomi pays to them the same care as to Franciacorta sparkling wines and this pure Chardonnay refined in barriques, called Solicano, is undoubtedly one of the jewels of the area.

Colour

Solicano’s colour is between golden and pale yellow, with bright hues and pale greenish glows.

Bouquet

Solicano has got a complex bouquet, marked by ripe yellow fruit, almost peach jam, with that hazelnut note that is the Chardonnay most relevant characteristic.

Taste

The taste is full, revealing its good structure. It is varied and well blended, so it results perfectly balanced.
It confirms the bouquet with ripe fruit, vanilla and hazelnut notes, with a long persisting final. Quite pleasant.
