Producer

Ca’ del Bosco, meaning the “house in the wood”, was conceive din 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-four and thirty-one years, in the provinces of Erbusco, Adro, Cazzago San Martino, Corte Franca, Iseo and Passirano. The grapes were hand-harvested in the first ten days of August.

Winery

After picking, the grapes are chilled and then go through a three stage cleaning and drying process before crushing.The Pinot Noir is then left on its skins for one to two days to extract colour, before undergoing alcoholic fermentation in oak casks and stainless steel tanks, whilst the Chardonnay is vinified in the traditional manner. The base wines are then aged for eight months in tank, before blending. The resulting cuvée then undergoes secondary fermentation in bottle and maturation on its lees for thirty months, before being disgorged using a patented technique, in the absence of oxygen.
