Description

With over three decades of experience making sparkling wines, the next evolution for Ca’ del Bosco happened in 2007 with the first release of the Extra Brut Cuvee Prestige.

Utilising the best Chardonnay, Pinot Nero and Pinot Bianco grapes from their top vineyards, each parcel is vinified separately, before being blended with at least 20% reserve wine for each release.

Full of juicy stone and orchard fruit, lovely baked pastry, and a creamy nutty character, this is a well-balanced and elegant sparkling wine from the ‘Champagne’ of Italy; Franciacorta.

After pressing in an oxygen-free press, all the musts of the base wines ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, where they remain until the following month of March. The wines take seven months to settle, mature and express the very best characteristics of their vineyards of origin. The wines are then carefully assembled in the "magical ritual" that creates the cuvée. Only after ageing on the lees for at least 2 years will this Franciacorta express all its richness and identity. Disgorgement is carried out in an oxygen-free environment. This procedure prevents oxidative shocks and makes it unnecessary to add sulfites

91 Points - "This is tropical and moreish with a sneaky, subtle complexity. Vinified separately from the 134 vineyards the fruit is sourced from, 20% reserve wines are added before being fermented in bottle for and resting for 28 months on lees before disgorging. Juicy peaches, golden delicious apples , pineapple, grilled apricots, apple danish pastries and an underlying salinity. Lively bubbles on the palate with ripe pears, tarte tatin, creamy peach yoghurt and a subtle pastry and crushed almond finish." - Curly Haslam-Coates (Wine Front)

91 Points - "Remarkably pretty with floral perfumes and white smoke blossoming into a pure display of ripe pear and hints of lemon confit. It's round and pliant, balanced by a brilliant mix of bright acids and minerals that gives way to yellow apples. The finish is wonderfully dry and clean, tapering off to hints of savory spice. It's a great introduction to the Ca' del Bosco portfolio." Eric Guido (Vinous)

92 Points - "Some bread dough and pie crust to the lightly cooked apples and hints of pear skins. It's full-bodied with a round texture and a flavourful finish. Consistently delicious." - James Suckling (JamesSuckling.com)

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
