Annamaria Clementi is the product of an unremitting quest for excellence in the vineyards as well as in the cellar. In line with the Ca' del Bosco Method, the grapes are hand-picked and placed in small crates on which a code is immediately stamped, just before they are cold-stored. Each bunch is selected by expert eyes and hands and then goes through our exclusive special whirlpool-like wash for grape bunches, consisting of three soaking tanks, followed by thorough drying. The base wines are obtained exclusively from free-run juice. Alcoholic fermentation takes place only in small oak casks, made of selected wood seasoned for a minimum of 3 years. There, the wine remains on its lees for six more months, during which malolactic fermentation takes place. No compromises, no concessions are acceptable: only wine from the best barrels of the 22 base wines is drawn off to go into Annamaria Clementi

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 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.
