||White sparkling classic method extra brut
||From the oldest vineyards of Castello Bonomi - located at 275 meters above sea level - is born an exclusive Franciacorta, obtained from Pinot Noir in purity. The cuvée is produced exclusively in great vintages, in which the ripeness of the grapes reaches a balance that ensures longevity and perfect harmony.
||For this Riserva, the harvest was carried out in the second decade of August, with meticulous selection of the bunches, from this vintage comes a savory wine with a great structure of extreme elegance.
||Only the must is extracted by soft pressing. Vinification takes place with the help of cold techniques. Every precaution is put in place in order to obtain uncompromising quality. The wine makes the first fermentation and after 8 months of rest on the lees, it is ready for the assembly and the sparkling. A very long aging on the lees is the key to the success of Franciacorta Castello Bonomi Cuvée Lucrezia Black Label, which matures for a minimum of 70 months before disgorgement. After the dégorgement it rests for a further long period in order to achieve perfect harmony.
||If properly conserved, it maintains and even improves its quality characteristics over time. To fully enjoy it, it is advisable to let it rest in the glass a few minutes before consumption. After all these years in the bottle, there's no rush ...
||Splendid Franciacorta for great occasions, wonderfully accompanies dishes based on fish or fine white meats. Sublime with lobster in bellavista.
