Starts with ripe fruit sweetness and finishes with a dry, almond-kissed minerality. A winner with chicken dinner. — 4 months ago
Since it is Friday Pizza Night, I thought we would relive our visit (5/15) & retry Ca’ del Bosco. I needed to see if it held up to our memory of tasting there. As well as, our visit there was prior to my heavy fixation on Champagne. And, it still does not disappoint.
The nose reveals; lemon extract, lime zest, ripe pineapple, white peach, touch of apricots and ripe tropical melons, slivered almonds, caramel notes, vanilla, honey notes, candle wax, delicate, grey, volcanic minerals, soft, chalkiness with yellow lilies set in a field of spring flowers.
The mouthfeel is heavy, rich, crisp and waxy. Softer, more delicate micro bubbles. Waxy/oily & a touch sour lemons, lime zest, ripe pineapple, white peach, touch of apricots and ripe tropical melons, slivered almonds, caramel notes, vanilla, honey notes, candle wax, delicate, very light white spice, grey, volcanic minerals, soft, chalkiness with yellow lilies & fruit blossoms set in a field of spring flowers. The acidity is round, phat and lively. The rich, lush, well balanced finish is delicious and persists nicely for minutes.
Photos of; Ca’ de Bosco entrance, their red velvet tasting salon, caves, and the bridge over their man made lake you walk from the parking lot to get to the property.
This was not available locally & had to ship it from the East coast to relive our memories.
While this states it is in Lombardy, the region is called Franciacorta. It is Italy’s Sparkling Wine region or its Champagne equivalent. There are two beautiful lakes near by, Iseo (which is where we stayed) as it’s closer to Franciacorta and less touristy than the more visited Lake Garda. Lake Garda is huge and extremely crowded during high season. — 14 days ago

Really smooth and silky Syrah from Tuscany, which represents the grape variety really well. There are some clove plum black fruit pepper cinnamon. It's quite obvious that this wine has some aging potential.
