Vineyard Castello Bonomi
Type Sparkling White
Varietals Cuvèe 22 is the result of the special selection of 22 Cru of Chardonnay grapes.
Winemaking Altitude, soil morphology, age of the vineyard, sun exposure, ripeness of the grapes are the main features to select the cru, with the aim to obtain the real expression of Franciacorta terroir. Our oenologists decide the specific treatment to use, thanks to the division of the vineyards in small cru: this philosophy permits to exalt the characterizing features of each specific cru.
Aging Each cru is vinified separately from the others. After the cold fermentation, each wine refines on the noble lees. The blend is created with all cru by our chef-de-cave, who then follows also the refermentation, the contact with the yeasts and the final refinement process in bottle.
It expresses the typical Chardonnay notes of pineapple, peach and apricot with perfume of apple, acacia flowers and dried fruit. A fresh, velvety and soft sparkling wine. Excellent as an aperitif but well suited to any meal. Perfect with fish-based dishes such as grilled prawns or baked sea bass. Also try it with vegetablebased summer dishes. The wine is ready for consumption and, properly stored, maintains and even improves over time its qualitative characteristics. Cuvèe 22 aims to hold a place of honor among our Franciacortas and was born from a challenge from our Chef de Cave Luigi Bersini.
The design of the label dresses it in an unmistakable way: the thin and sinuous green lines, inspired by the 22 crus, describe the unmistakable hilly morphology of Monte Orfano and the harmonious terraces of the Chardonnay rows. The logo with the castle in the center expresses the history, tradition and authenticity of Castello Bonomi.
