Franciacorta Brut CruPerdu 2011

CruPerdu Franciacorta Brut is Castello Bonomi’s pop star, the best seller, the vineyard’s symbol.

Grapes

Chardonnay 70%, Pinot Nero 30%

In vineyards

Cruperdu is born from Chardonnay grapes (70%) and Pinot Noir (30%) of the
same vintage. The 2011 vintage was a vintage of special value that in the cellar is allowed to best express the philosophy of Castello Bonomi. The enhancement of exceptional vintages through long refinements is what particularly distinguishes us

It was the summer of 1986 when Luigi Bersini, chef de cave at
Bonomi, leaving the vineyards to go into the woods, found between ivy and
selvatic shrubs some vine plants. He discovered that the woods, over the
years, had taken possession of a portion of land hiding an old vineyard. The
passion and love for the earth convinced the forest to retreat to allow a second
life to these old vineyards. The lost vineyard, the CruPedru, gives the name to
this beautiful cuvée. The harvest lasts from 10th August to 25th August, with
meticulous selection of the bunches.

In cellar

After a gentle pressing to extract only the best must, the vinification takes
place using cold techniques, which make it possible to enhance the aromas
and finesse of the wine; fermentation occurs at a temperature of about 14°C.
After the first fermentation in steel and wood, part of the cuvée ages for
about 8 months at controlled temperature before taking foam. Cruperdu then
evolves and ages patiently in bottle for 72 months.

In tasting

A bright straw yellow wine with green and gold reflections, and a fine, longlasting
perlage.
Bouquet is gently herbaceous, and it’s characterized by a complex nose, with
the nuance of tropical fruit, yeasts and roasted nuts. A soft and embracing
palate with citrus notes.

Plus

The Franciacorta symbol of Castello Bonomi. It expresses all the typical
characteristics of this terroir. Cruperdu is a long-lasting Franciacorta, which
evolves improving up to 10 years from disgorging.

Durability

The Franciacorta CruPerdu Castello Bonomi is perfect for consumption and,
if properly stored, it evolves and improves over time. His proverbial longevity
makes him a champion of the cellar.

Pairings

It’ s recommended for all meals; it pairs magnificently with delicate fish
dishes. Excellent with crustacean and raw fish. Try matching it also with beef
tartare.
