The Del Bono Brothers are a phenomenon! From vineyards in the Franciacorta zone of Lombardy, the brothers make sparkling wines with zero additions (save for the Liqueur de tirage) that arrive from Bio-dynamically farmed vineyards that have never seen a synthetic Herbicide or Pesticide Sprayed. Aurelio takes his inspiration from time working for Anselme Selosse by producing wines with greater fruit ripeness than the rest of the zone, resulting in a wine that is generous and opulent aromatically but that finishes with laser like precision from lack the lack of Dosage.
Le Vieux De La Maison is another masterpiece of the Bono family. 14 years of aging on the yeasts that have generated a sparkling wine of rare complexity and structure, obtained from a blend of Pinot Grigio and Bianco. A wine full of charm and personality for sale Le Vieux De La Maison dresses the glass with a golden yellow colour with a very fine and delicate, almost creamy perlage. On the nose the aromas are intense characterized by notes of yellow fruit, and brioche bread. On the palate it is very elegant, mineral, soft and fresh, of great persistence. A sparkling wine not for everyone, but for those looking for something special.
