Ca' del Bosco Franciacorta Cuvee Prestige
Non-Vintage Sparkling Wine from Lombardy, Italy
Brilliant gold. Complex nose combining fresh fruits (apple, pear), linden and notes of acacia honey and green tea. Wonderful exuberance on the palate that is firm, mineral, focused and ends on a dried almond note. An elegant wine.

Shows lots of white peaches, orange blossom, chamomile and jasmine with hints of apple pastries. Full-bodied and very textured with a fine line of bubbles and so much stone-fruit and even tropical-fruit flavors. Pretty acidity provides balance.

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.
