Ca' del Bosco Cuvée Prestige "Edizione 44" Franciacorta DOCG
Ca' del Bosco, founded in 1969, is one of the world's foremost producers of Franciacorta and Italy's most revered sparkling wine from the Lombardy region. The winery's state-of-the-art cellar, unique in Franciacorta, allows the winemaking team to produce the best wines possible and of the highest quality. This beautiful sparkling wine shows a unique aromatic profile with spicy notes of spearmint and fresh oregano leaf. Beyond those vertical aromas are heavier tones of stone fruit, honeydew melon, and blanched almond. This wine is an ideal aperitif, and its elegant texture pairs well with an assortment of seafood, delicate charcuterie, soft cheese, and hors d'oeuvres.
Only the finest Chardonnay, Pinot Nero and Pinot Bianco grapes from the best 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 almost 24 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.
