Ca' del Bosco "Cuvée Prestige" Franciacorta Brut
Cuvée Prestige has a fragrance of toasted bread crust, apple and pear. The creamy palate has a great depth of flavors: Golden Delicious apple, lemon drop, honey and pastry. The wine finishes on an almond note.
Though rich and creamy, this wine is focused by finely cut acidity, resulting in a lithe version overall. The smoky mineral undertow mixes with flavors of poached apple, toasted brioche, lemon curd and vanilla, followed by a lasting finish. Drink now through 2018.
Immediate, appealing yellow fruit and bread-crust nose. Fine bead and slow to emerge lemon fruit. Very competently made. Long, fragrant and at the drier side of the spectrum. Drink 2013-2016.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The NV Brut Cuvee Prestige is an excellent introduction to the sparkling wines of Ca’ del Bosco. Sweet floral notes meld into an expressive core of fruit in this polished, attractive entry-level sparkler.
Carefully selected grapes (Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir) result in a fresh, very fragrant product with a wide range of aromas. It also has a firm structure, rich attractive mousse and persistence. With an intense aroma, very refined and enduring, which brings to mind lime blossom underlined by apple and peach. The flavor is elegant, soft, and delicate with acidity is in perfect balance and a note of ripe fruit driving into the finish.
