Country: Italy, Franciacorta
Tasting Notes: A virtue found in the etymology of an ancient word: idem, or being the same. Cuvée Prestige, the essence of Franciacorta, Ca' del Bosco style. A jewel created in 2007 from thirty year's experience. 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.
Varietal: Blend of Chardonnay 75%, Pinot Bianco 10%, Pinot Nero 15%
Pairing: Pair this wine with spaghetti and meatballs, Bolognese sauces, pappa pomodoro, and lamb kebabs.
