Description Sub Region Producer Notes
Raspberries, cassis and gooseberries cavort on a bed of white flower petals, toasted brioche, peach jam, acacia honey and crushed river rocks in the captivating ’11 Franciacorta Cru Perdu. Fine perlage tickles the palate, while the wine finds compelling tensions between its succulent fruits, vivid acidity, and penetrating minerality. Very dry and highly enjoyable, this Franciacorta wine might be your new favorite alternative to Champagne! In 1986, Castello Bonomi’s chef de cave, Luigi Bersini, took a walk in the woods and found an abandoned vineyard. This 10-acre vineyard is the source of the wine’s name and the grapes for Bonomi’s most popular Franciacorta bottling, its CruPerdu. A blend of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir, grapes ferment in temperature-controlled steel and wood vats; part of the cuvée’s second fermentation takes eight months in vats before blending and bottling, where the wine ages on the lees for 36 months.
