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. 81% of this cuvee is based on the 2018 vintage. An extremely classy example of Franciacorta, combining rich flavors of toasted brioche, butterscotch, baked apricots, and almonds with subtle herbaceous notes and clean, refreshing acidity.

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.
