Ca'del Bosco Dosage Zero Millesimato Franciacorta DOCG 2001, Lombardy, Italy
AWARD: Wine Enthusiast - 90 points. '"Dosage Zéro” means no sweetness has been added to this sparkler and the result is an intensely nutty wine with aromas of toasted almonds and walnuts, fresh apple and peach cobbler. Those toasty, nutty notes spread evenly throughout the mouth thanks to the wine's smooth creaminess.'
