In 1995 Franciacorta was given D.O.C.G. (Denomination of Origen Controlled and Guaranteed) status, a significant testimonial to its winemakers’ continuing commitment to excellent work and to further improving the quality of Franciacorta wines.
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW
“The non-vintage Franciacorta Cuvee Prestige is packaged in a transparent, squat bottle. You can admire the color of the wine, with its deep golden highlights, from afar. But only once the cork is popped, will you appreciate the width of its aromas. Preserved lemon, dried apricot, pineapple, toasted nut, baguette and candied orange peel come from the glass. For an entry level Franciacorta (representing a blend of 75% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Bianco and 15% Pinot Nero), the complexity is impressive. The mouthfeel is extra suave and smooth with a distant point of sweet fruit that rides long on the finish.”
Excellent when served with rich and robust foods, such as New York steak, bold cheeses and stuffed mushrooms.
