  • Barbacan Pizamej Valtellina Superiore 2017

    £42.99

    “Chiavennasca and 5–6% Rossola. (The DOC regulations stipulate at least 90% Chiavennasca (Nebbiolo).) Vineyard planted in the 1930s.

    Concentrated mid ruby. Perfumed, deep and concentrated nose, with a hint of savoury spice. Well-stitched, more rounded and a little less edgy than the Sol, but with impressive juicy, fluid red fruit and long, finely chiselled tannins. Very long, elegant and supple. Drink: 2019-2026. 17+ points”

    “Same winemaking as the regular Valtellina. Cask sample.

    Lustrous mid ruby. Really pretty perfumed nose with great focus. Concentrated but fine. Succulent, minerally fruit with a saline note on the finish. Fine, long-lasting, clinging tannins. Drink: 2020-2028. 17+ points”

  • Ca’ del Bosco Cuvee Prestige N.V.

    £28.49

    Was £33.49

    “Packaged in a transparent bottle and an easily recognized yellow-gold label, the NV Franciacorta Cuvée Prestige Brut is a blend of 75% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Bianco and 15% Pinot Nero. This is among Ca’ del Bosco’s most affordable and accessible sparkling wines. It offers steady consistency year after year. I’ve always loved the bouquet of this wine. It shows a slightly spicy side that reminds me of Christmas oranges nailed with cloves. In the mouth, the wine is lean and crisp with fine and persistent perlage. Drink: 2018-2026. 91 points

    Over the course of 2018, Maurizio Zanella and the team at Ca’ del Bosco began a winery enlargement project that will increase production capacity. Specifically, the estate is looking at growing its numbers of the more accessible Cuvée Prestige line. Personally, I find that line to be one of the best value buys in Franciacorta, so the news is all good.”

  • Ca’ del Bosco Cuvee Prestige Rose N.V.

    £47.99

    “The NV Franciacorta Cuvée Prestige Rosé is a blend of 80% Pinot Nero and 20% Chardonnay. It exhibits a pale pink color that has evidently been studied and carefully executed. That same attention to detail is applied to the bouquet. Delicate and vibrant aromas of forest berry and cassis emerge slowly from the glass. It also shows subtle yeast aromas of baked bread or croissant. The wine’s texture is lean and firm, and the soft effervescence serves to keep the palate clean. Drink: 2018-2026. 92 points
