Gilbert & Gaillard: Lucrezia Etichetta Nera awarded with 93 points!

“Three Glasses” of Gambero Rosso guide. Oscar best sparkling wine. “Five bunches” in Bibenda guide. Four Screws in AIS Vitae. Lucrezia Etichetta Nera already had all the most prestigious wine awards. At least we thought so…

Instead, it managed to surprise us once again, winning with 93 points a prestigious Gold Medal in the guide Gilbert & Gaillard Edition 2016, tasted and evaluated by a committee of experts.

This Extra Brut, from grapes 100 % Pinot Noir, has always been the symbol of Castello Bonomi’s excellence. A niche production that rises to the highest levels the toughest choices of our estate and winery. Lucrezia Etichetta Nera was born in Castello Bonomi’s oldest vineyards, located at 275 m height. It’s produced exclusively in great vintages, when the maturity of the grapes reaches a balance which ensures longevity and perfect harmony.

70 are the months that the cuvée stays on the lees before the disgorging.

Maniacal care, great experience and patience are the keys of this further success: just in this way you can prevail in a prestigious competition such as the Francois Gilbert & Philippe Gaillard one, couple of critical acclaimed French known worldwide, who signed for more than 20 years International Guide and the prestigious magazine.

Another, new certificate of highest value for our estate in Franciacorta, conquered with pride in the land of France.
