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.
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 am not a big champagne drinker, but if you are looking for something out of the ordinary that will not affect your wallet to much, I highly recommend Sofia. Drink before your food to fully enjoy its taste. Drink it mildly cold.
Great packaging for gifting. But I found that many who have passed on the bubbly before will give this a try. Has a light fruity taste and easy on the bubbles.
