WS 90 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - "Though rich and creamy, this wine is focused by finely cut acidity, resulting in a lithe version overall. The smoky mineral undertow mixes with flavors of poached apple, toasted brioche, lemon curd and vanilla, followed by a lasting finish. Drink now through 2018."
According to Wine Advocate - "Ca’ del Bosco’s NV Franciacorta Brut reveals a pretty expression of flowers, smoke, minerals and peaches with notable softness on the palate and a long, finessed finish. It is a great introduction to the wines of Franciacorta."
Winemaker Notes - "Identity. A virtue found in the etymology of an ancient word: idem, or being the same. Cuvée Prestige, the essence of Franciacorta, Ca' del Bosco style. A jewel created in 2007 from thirty year's experience. Only the finest Chardonnay (75%), Pinot Nero (15%) and Pinot Bianco (10%) grapes from 134 vineyards, vinified separately and skillfully blended with reserves of the finest vintages (at least 20%) go into the magical rite of Cuvée creation. It will take 28 months of refinement on yeasts before this wine is ready to express all its richness and identity. A classic, well-balanced Franciacorta, pleasantly fresh and crisp. Perfect for any occasion." 12.5% ABV.
