Franciacorta Riserva Lucrezia Etichetta Nera 2004

Grapes

Pinot nero 100%

In vineyards

From the oldest vineyards of Castello Bonomi – located 275 meters above sea level – an exclusive Franciacorta is produced from Pinot Noir in pureness. It’s produced exclusively in the great  vintages, where the maturity of the grapes achieves a balance that ensures longevity and perfect harmony. For this reserve 2004, the harvest was completed in the second decade of August, with meticulous selection of the bunches.

In cellar

Through the gentle pressing, only the best must is extracted. Vinification is made with the cold techniques. The wine does its first fermentation and after 8 months of on the yeasts, it’s ready for the cuvée and for the bottle fermentation. A long ageing on the yeasts is the key of its success, that refines on the yeasts for a minimum of 170 months before the disgorging. After the dégorgement it rests for a further long period to achieve perfect harmony.

In tasting

A golden Franciacorta with copper reflexes. The foam is abundant with fine and persistent perlage. A nose of great rigor and intensity, extraordinarily elegant and complex, with hints of candied citrus fruits and fragrances of crust bread, hay and chamomile. The mineral notes stand out on an important acid structure. It’s a Franciacorta with great expressiveness with an exceptional, long ending.

Plus

The most award-winning Franciacorta in the last years and this is even more surprising if we think that the awards have been given 10 years from the harvest! A niche production that raises at the highest summits the rigorous choices of our estate and exemplify once more the joy Castello Bonomi expresses under the heavens of Franciacorta, thanks to the extraordinary longevity of its wines.

Pairings

Splendid Franciacorta for the great occasions, accompanies magnificently grilled fish or white meat such as sea bass carpaccio or ravioli with truffles. Sublime on tuna cut and bass.
