Product: “This one hails from Franciacorta, where Italy's finest sparkling wines are made, from one of the best producers, Ca' del Bosco. Chardonnay is dominant at 80 per cent, delivering fresh apple notes, and yeasty, nutty nuances met with lively bead and superb length. Perfectly balanced, it finishes dry - it is a brut after all - but with plenty of ripeness and richness on the palate. Lovely. Smart bubbles.” - Jane Faulkner, The Age

Producer Info: When a fifteen year old Maurizio Zanella moved with his mother moved to Erbusco and planted the first vineyard, the initial contact with what would be the love of his life began. Years later and after a trip to Champagne, to the famous maisons whose wine had always fascinated and inspired him, Maurizio returned with the unshakeable idea of making something similar. What was once a house in a chestnut wood became one of the most trailblazing wineries in Italy.

Since then a single principle has been defining the essence of Ca' del Bosco: the quest for excellence. Only the finest Chardonnay (75%), Pinot Nero (15%) and Pinot Bianco (10%) grapes from 134 vineyards, vinified separately and skillfully blended with reserves of the finest vintages (at least 20%) go into the magical rite of Cuvée creation. It will take 28 months of refinement on yeasts before this wine is ready to express all its richness and identity. A classic, well-balanced Franciacorta, pleasantly fresh and crisp. Perfect for any occasion.
