CA’ DEL BOSCO Cuvee Prestige, Franciacorta
Sale price ($) 1.86
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.

92 points James Suckling
A very vinous sparkling wine with a fresh and fruity character and lots of apple and pear undertones. Full body and soft texture. Serious. Disgorged in 2016. Drink now. (10/2017)

The NV Franciacorta Cuvée Prestige Brut is packaged in a squat and transparent bottle. This beautiful sparkling wine shows a unique aromatic profile with spicy notes of spearmint and fresh oregano leaf that pop to the top. Beyond those vertical aromas are heavier tones of stone fruit, honeydew melon and blanched almond. This Franciacorta (75% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Bianco and 15% Pinot Nero) offers spicy and vibrant aromatic tones that you don’t find in its peers. (ML) (5/2017)
Aromas of citrus, orchard fruit and a subtle whiff of toast lead the nose on this delightful sparkler. The straightforward palate shows yellow apple skin, bitter walnut and a note of baked bread alongside firm, vivacious bubbles. (KO) (12/2016)
Accents of toasted brioche and butterscotch lead to baked apricot, pastry and chopped almond flavors in this rich Franciacorta firmed by lively acidity. Disgorged winter 2016. (AN, Web Only-2018)
This fragrant, fresh bubbly is crafted from carefully selected Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir grapes. It has a firm structure, a rich attractive mousse and a persistent finish. Intense aromas of lime blossom are underlined by apple and peach. It is elegant, soft and delicate with acidity is in perfect balance and a note of ripe fruit driving into the finish.
