Producer

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.

Vineyard

Grapes are sourced from a range of vineyards with average ages of between twenty-two and thirty years, in the provinces of Erbusco, Adro, Cazzago San Martino, Corte Franca, Iseo and Passirano. The grapes were hand-harvested in the first half of August.

Winery

After picking, the grapes are chilled, sorted by vineyard and then go through a three stage cleaning and drying process, before crushing.The juice then undergoes alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks and the base wines are then aged for seven months in tank, before being blended with twenty to thirty percent of reserve wines. The resulting cuvée then undergoes secondary fermentation in bottle and maturation on its lees for twenty-five months, before being disgorged using a patented technique, in the absence of oxygen.
