Sparkling Wine

Ca' del Bosco CuvĂ©e Prestige Extra Brut Franciacorta, Lombardy D.O.C.G., Italy: How bizarrely great! I went in with some misconceptions as to just what this Italian bubbly would be and was pleasantly dispelled. Toasty like champagne, robust and frothy with a terrific refreshment on the finish. Green apple brightness mid-palate. Pair with potato chips. This is a vibrant blend of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Nero aka Pinot Noir. Franciacorta food pairings: smoked salmon, pan-fried scallops, caviar.
