Castello Bonomi Franciacorta Cru Perdu Grande Annata Extra Brut 2016

Product description

CruPerdu Grande Annata is made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir of the same vintage. Only in the best vintages do the grapes of these two varieties achieve a particular acid structure and savouriness, characteristics that are also found in the wine, giving it greater complexity and longevity. When these peculiarities are confirmed after at least 48 months on the lees, a limited number of bottles are selected and left to rest for another year before being sold.

Blend: 70% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir

97 Points - Wine Enthusiast

CruPerdu is from an old reclaimed vineyard that shows its pedigree from the start with fresh citrus notes, orchard fruits, ginger, jasmine and intense minerality. The palate is firm and structured and shows the potential for a long life. Crushed stones give way to candied orange zest and fresh brioche with a touch of cream all balanced by stunning acidity.
