Ca' del Bosco Prestige NV is a quintessential expression of Franciacorta, an Italian sparkling wine that rivals the best in the world. This particular cuvée is a testament to the artistry and meticulous craftsmanship of Ca' del Bosco, one of the most esteemed producers in the region.
This sparkling wine is a masterful blend of three grape varieties: predominantly Chardonnay (75%), which provides the backbone and structure; Pinot Nero (15%), lending depth and complexity; and Pinot Bianco (10%), adding freshness and elegance. The selection of grapes is not just from a single vineyard but from an impressive 134 vineyards, each contributing its unique character to the final blend.
One of the key aspects of the Ca' del Bosco Prestige NV is the vinification process. Each varietal is vinified separately, ensuring that the unique qualities of each grape are preserved. This meticulous process also involves the blending of reserve wines from the finest vintages, a practice that adds layers of complexity and depth, and is often reserved for the most premium sparkling wines.
The wine undergoes a prolonged maturation period of 28 months before bottling, a duration that allows it to develop its full richness and identity. This extended aging is evident in the wine's complexity and the refinement of its bubbles.
On tasting the Ca' del Bosco Prestige NV, you'll be greeted with a classic and well-balanced profile that Franciacorta is renowned for. The wine is vibrant and crisp, with a lively effervescence that tickles the palate. Expect to experience a harmonious blend of flavors and aromas, characteristic of the Chardonnay, Pinot Nero, and Pinot Bianco grapes, all coming together in a seamless expression of elegance and finesse.
This Franciacorta is perfect for any occasion, be it a celebratory toast, an elegant aperitif, or a companion to a refined meal. Its versatility and delightful character make it a favorite among sparkling wine enthusiasts and a wonderful introduction for those exploring the world of high-quality Italian sparkling wines. In summary, Ca' del Bosco Prestige NV is not just a bottle of sparkling wine, but a celebration of the excellence and tradition of Franciacorta winemaking.
