Production Notes

The grapes are hand-picked and placed in small crates, graded and chilled. Every bunch is selected by trained eyes and hands, just before they go through our exclusive “berry spa”, a special whirlpool-like wash for grape bunches, consisting of three soaking tanks, followed by thorough drying in a special tunnel. After pressing in an oxygen-free press, all the musts of the base wines ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, where they remain until the following month of March. The wines take seven months to settle, mature and express the very best characteristics of their vineyards of origin. The wines are then carefully assembled in the “magical ritual” that creates the cuvée. Only after aging on the lees for at least 2 years will this Franciacorta express all its richness and identity. Disgorgement is carried out in an oxygen-free environment, using a proprietary process designed and patented by Ca’ del Bosco. This procedure prevents oxidative shocks and makes it unnecessary to add sulfites, making our Franciacortas purer, more appealing and longer lived. Finally, every bottle is marked with a unique identifier to ensure its traceability.

Producer Information

Ca’ del Bosco, meaning the “house in the wood”, was conceived in 1965 when Annamaria Clementi bought a small hillside house in Erbusco with five hectares of land attached. By 1968, the first vineyards were planted and in 1972 the first still wine was produced, followed by the first sparkling wine, released in 1978. In the following forty years, under the guidance of Annamaria’s son Maurizio Zanella,

Ca’ del Bosco has earned its reputation as the leading producer in Franciacorta, an appellation that Zanella himself has championed through his tireless work as the president of the Consorzio. Although their vineyard holdings have grown, attention to detail remains as a constant, even down to diligently washing the grapes on arrival at the winery. Whilst they are now best known for their benchmark sparkling wines, they take as much pride in the production of their still wines, a stellar Chardonnay and a brace of reds made using Bordeaux varieties.
