Sensory profile

Presentation: Straw yellow. Creamy mousse and delicate, long-lasting bead

Nose: Rich, with excellent fruit, releasing scents of yellow apple and peach, with notes of wisteria and acacia blossom. Wonderful balance and elegance complement a pleasurably crisp spiciness

Palate: Delicious vein of acidity, displaying crisp, savoury mouthfeel. Generous, lingering flavours nicely mirror the nose and achieve perfect balance

Food recommendation

Ideal as an aperitif, but also a wine to be enjoyed throughout a meal. Excellent with fish, shellfish, and other seafood. Goes well with any light, delicate dish

Serving temperature

Chill to 7-8° C before serving. An ice bucket is the perfect presentation

Serving glass

White wine glass, medium-wide. Avoid using tall, slender flutes: while they maximize enjoyment of the bead, they inhibit release of the wine’s bouquet

Cellaring

Store away from heat and light, but not in the refrigerator

Optimal time to enjoy

Bosco di Gica Brut displays its truest characteristics--crisp, fresh, and fruity--if consumed in the year after vintage. However, in the following years, if cellared under proper conditions, intensity of flavours and fruitiness will lessen somewhat, but the wine-lover may be pleasantly surprised by a greater complexity on nose and palate
