Top 10 sparkling wines of 2018

3 Ca’ d’Or, Saten, Franciacorta DOCG, Lombardy, Italy, NV      


Bonfadini, Carpe Diem, Saten, Franciacorta DOCG, Lombardia, Italy, 2015     

For those that follow the sparkling wine scene closely, you’ll probably know that the Italian region of Franciacorta has carved out a reputation for very fine traditional-method fizz, and is now widely seen as Italy’s answer to Champagne.

Confirming such a status for this product, which hails from the province in Brescia, in Lombardy, were two delicious sparkling wines, one from Ca d’Or and the other from Bonfini.

Both delivered masses of bright lemon and peach flizz, with a lovely toasty edge, and each was a Saten style of Franciacorta, meaning they used only white grapes – the equivalent of a blanc de blancs in Champagne.

Approximate retail price for both Franciacortas: £24
