Ca’del Bosco Cuvee Prestige DOCG Franciacorta Brut N/V

11,90000

Packaged in a transparent bottle and an easily recognized yellow-gold label, the NV Franciacorta Cuvée Prestige Brut is a blend of 75% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Bianco and 15% Pinot Nero. This is among Ca’ del Bosco’s most affordable and accessible sparkling wines. It offers steady consistency year after year. I’ve always loved the bouquet of this wine. It shows a slightly spicy side that reminds me of Christmas oranges nailed with cloves. In the mouth, the wine is lean and crisp with fine and persistent perlage.

Description

• This is the pioneering wine of the Franciacorta appellation created by maverick wine maker Maurizio Zanella about 50 years ago.
Franciacorta is made by the traditional method with secondary fermentation in the bottle. The average quality of Franciacorta, a much smaller appellation than Champagne, is regarded as better than the latter. Whilst Champagne is made from three grape varietals, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and the lesser Pinot Meunier, the third varietal in the case of Franciacorta is the nobler Pinot Bianco.
• The uniqueness of its environment and the manic attention to the smallest of details by Maurizio Zanella makes this the Ferrari of the sparkling wine world.
