The annual production of Le Cantorie currently reaches 75,000 bottles, obtained exclusively through the direct processing of grapes from our own vineyards.
The range of Franciacorta wines offered by our winery includes only vintage wines, which boast long aging periods of at least thirty months, a time much longer than the one imposed by the DOCG production rules. Not only Franciacorta, anyway: the promotion of the red wines typical of the area has a leading role in our production, which includes valuable reserves.
Those produced by the Bontempi family are wines that should be carefully tasted and gently listened to. From the glass, the unmistakable aromas released by the strength of the earth will whisper in your ear; let your imagination take you to the places where they want to lead you: there you will find harmonies of scents and sensations that will sing the history of our vineyards.
From a vital desire for experimentation comes Coro Nero, a refined and definitely extraordinary wine. At the origin of this jewel – which the winery proposes only once in ten years and in limited edition – there is a careful selection of grapes from ten different vintages. This makes this wine unique.
The grapes that make it up – Barbera, Marzemino, Cabernet Sauvignon and Moscato di Scanzo – come from the terraces of the highest hillside vineyards of the Bontempi family. These are left to dry first on the vine and then in small boxes for about 2 months. Afterwards, part of the obtained wine is aged in small oak barrels, and then destined to very few numbered 0.50 lt. bottles.
Coro Nero is a reserve red that combines strength and elegance, enhancing density and aromatic richness with a slightly sweet taste, clean and round. A traditional and at the same time innovative wine.
