LCBO released the Ca’del Bosco Cuvée Prestige Brut Franciacorta today in time for holiday entertaining and gifting. With its distinct packaging and delicious contents it’s a great sparking wine to enjoy this holiday season.
Franciacorta sparkling wine, purely Italian, pure tradition and representing the highest quality available. Franciacorta is more than a fine wine, it’s a DOCG, and a winemaking style that produces elegant world-class sparkling wines. Ca’del Bosco’s NV Brut is a great example of the quality that the Franciacorta wine region is producing between Italy’s iconic cities of Milan and Verona. Golden yellow in colour with endless streams of micro bubbles intriguing those awaiting their first sip. Baked bread, yellow apple, and nutty aromas greet the senses. Good depth of flavour with more orchard fruit and nutty layers persisting on the long and refreshing finish. Enjoy this fine Italian sparkling wine with seafood, and my favourite, oysters on the half shell with a good friend. Tasted February 2017. 91 points. Matt Steeves – http://www.quercusvino.ca
