There’s a noticeably handcrafted quality to the Florinda bubbly. Made of a combination of esoteric grapes hand selected from estate vineyards—40% Xarel-Lo, 30% Macabeo and 30% Parellada—the emphasis here is on fresh fruit flavor, notably green apple, tropical fruit and lemon-lime. Unlike many Champagnes, the intensity here is very dialed-down—mouthfeel is soft and carbonation is light; there’s no aspect of austerity nor is there a ton of complexity, but the wine compensates with likeability, approachability, pleasantry and drinkability. Comparatively speaking, this Cava Brut is softer and riper than most Prosecco and slightly crisper and drier than a typical California sparkling. For the price, it’s a wonderful substitute for Champagne.  90 Points
