Castello Bonomi Cruperdu Brut
GRAPES: 70% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Nero of the same vintage
AREA: unique microclimate of the southern part of the _Monte OrfanoÃ®. The terraced vineyards stretch for 24 hectares and surround Castello Bonomi at a height of 275 metres.
THE CRUPERDU: Careful selection of the grapes from 10 to 25. August with an average yield of 52 Hl. per hectare . The grapes are pressed gently to extract only the best must. The grapes are separately vinified with the cold maceration in order to keep the aromas of the wine.
The elegance of the wine is enhanced with the fermentation at 14?C. The first fermentation happens in steel tanks, then a part of the wine refines for about 8 months at controlled temperature in 225 lit. barriques. The blend is carefully prepared through wines refined in steel and in wood (about 15%).
The cuvee is added with selected active yeasts and with a small quantity of syrup (tirage) and it?s bottled in the sparkling wine bottle. After 36 months the phase of d_gorgement can start; with the pressure in the bottle the yeasts come out from the crown cap.
With this process, a part of the sparkling wine is lost and it is filled with the same cuvee (dosage). It follows a 6-months refinement in the bottle before the CruPerdu is released into the market.
