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. Jane Faulkner, The Age
The NV Franciacorta Cuvée Prestige Brut is packaged in a squat and transparent bottle. This beautiful sparkling wine shows a unique aromatic profile with spicy notes of spearmint and fresh oregano leaf that pop to the top. Beyond those vertical aromas are heavier tones of stone fruit, honeydew melon and blanched almond. This Franciacorta (75% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Bianco and 15% Pinot Nero) offers spicy and vibrant aromatic tones that you don't find in its peers. 92 points - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate
