Ca’del Bosco, Franciacorta, Cuvée Prestige, NV, Extra Brut, ABV 12.5%. 🇮🇹
Here is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco, Pinot Nero varieties, with a dosage at disgorgement introducing only 1 gram of sugar per liter, making this an Extra Brut sparkling wine (6 g/l max), coming from Franciacorta DOCG in the Lombardy region of Italy. Franciacorta sparklers are known for being produced with a second fermentation in the bottle and prolonged aging on the “lees” á la Méthode Champenoise. 🍾🥂
This is a beautiful representation. It’s pale gold, bone-dry, and offers toasty, bready notes next to tart, youthful peach, pear, and apple, lemon pith, blanched almonds, desiccated white flower, and wet slate. 💕
This wine is bright, elegant, and focused. It could cut through butter and is a delicious pairing with creamy, soft cheeses.👌👌👌

Nose has wet rocks, white flowers, green herbs, fresh cut hay field and lime peel & zest.
Palate has fresh lemon, crushed green herbs, under-ripe lychee, green apple peel with great lingering acidity.
This particular Lugana is actually Turbiana (Verdicchio for this village), not Trebbiano. — 2 months ago

A must try if you never had a Lugana, you will not be disappointed. Made with 100% Turbiana grapes. Lugana can be consumed young or aged for a few years gaining some mineral tones and elegance. Light straw yellow color, with rich ripe stone fruit and floral aromas. On the palate flavors of ripe apricot, pear, peach and citrus wrapped in balanced acidity on a long finish ending with fruit and mineral character. Nice value. Buy 2 and put one aside for a few years! — a month ago
