All pictures shown are for illustration purpose only. Actual label may vary due to changes between vintages.
Brightly hued, intensely scented, underscored with a hint of vanilla and a characteristic note of hazelnut. Its taste is full and rotund and its organoleptic structure is so intense as to be comparable to a red, yet it lingers in your senses for its extraordinary finesse.
About the Winery
Established in 1969, Ca’ Del Bosco is an Italian winery that owns over 230 hectares of vineyards in the Lombardy region in Franciacorta. It was at this time that Annamaria Clementi Zanella transformed a forest full of chestnut trees into a vineyard and winery. Maurizo Zanella is the one who created the famous flagship sparkling wine of this label, the Franciacorta DOCG. Many wine experts consider that Franciacorta is the only region in Italy to produce authentic sparkling wines in the world.
The winemaking method followed at Ca’ del Bosco is completely influenced by nature. While the team still follows historic winemaking techniques at the wineries, it also uses sophisticated equipment and cutting-edge technology to make some of the best Italian wines that you have ever tasted.
A special technique known as the Ca’ del Bosco method is used for making wines here. In this method, grapes are carefully selected and harvested in separate bunches. At the wineries, the grapes undergo a thorough cleaning system. Three huge soaking tanks are used for cluster-washing the grapes and giving them a hydromassage. Thanks to this vigorous cleaning technique, the juices extracted are as pure as possible.
Then, the musts undergo a decanting process in a couple of floating tasks, before they are fermented in oak barrels or stainless steel vats. At the wineries, wood is used to the best of its abilities to retain the flavour and aroma of the fruits while extracting the juices. The wines are aged in temperature-controlled environments, where innovative techniques are used in underground cellars to create top-quality wines.
Some of the popular Ca’ del Bosco wines created here are:
Court of the Red Wolf – Made from 38% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Cabernet Franc and 7% Carmenere
