2009 Ca'del Bosco Collection Brut, Franciacorta, Lombardy

( £26.60-£31, 12.5%, Olivino, The Oxford Wine Company, Winedirect )

At its best, Franciacorta can rank among the best sparkling wines in the world. This is rich, bready and nicely developed with toasty complexity, fine bubbles and a dry, savoury finish. Tangy, chalky and long on the palate.
