When it comes to Italian “bubbles” there are two choices: Either Franciacorta or Prosecco di Valdobbiadene. I usually tend the sparklers from Franciacorta in Lombardy, Italy. I admit that Franciacorta can be quite difficult to find. Especially if you don’t live in or close to a very large city.
Ca’ del Bosco is one of my favorite producers. Their wines tend to have a great perlage, are in most cases aromatic and most of them are brut.
Cuvee Prestige is Ca’ del Boscos primary wine. It retails for 29$. 75% Chardonnay. 15% Pinot Noir and 10% Pinot Blanc are used in the production for this non-vintage sparkler. Wine aged 28 months in stainless steel tanks.
I love how balanced the wine is. It convinces me also with a very long finish. The perlage was extremely long liked I mentioned above 🙂
The bottle shape and logo is quite nice I think. This sparkler is great as aperitif but also works for most big occasions. If you stumble over it then it’s worth a shot. My rating 8/10.
