Sofia Blanc de Blancs, a unique blend of Pinot Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscat, is a
delicate sparkling wine perfect for any celebration. It offers sophisticated flavors, seductive aromas, and light effervescence — all packaged with striking, feminine flair.
The fruit for Francis Coppola Sofia Blanc de Blancs is grown in the cool vineyards of the Arroyo Seco
in northern Monterey County. Known for its Burgundian-like climate, Monterey offers ideal
conditions for Pinot Blanc, which include a long growing season and soils that accentuate
the alluring floral characteristics inherent in this varietal.
The 2006 Sofia Blanc de Blancs exudes fresh aromas of peaches, apricots,
and tropical fruit, as well as a light perfume of lemon cream. Like Italy's best
Prosecco, this wine is vibrant and crisp, displaying bright flavors on the
palate and seductive notes of honeysuckle on the finish.
I have served this sparkling wine at several parties and everyone has commented on how much they enjoyed it. It was very refreshing, not heavy and worked with a variety of food and deserts. If you like your sparkling wine dry (brut) you may not like this wine.
