Ca'del Bosco Cuvee Prestige Franciacorta NV

An extremely classy example of the prestigious Italian sparkling wine from Ca' del Bosco, the leading producer in Franciacorta.

Toasted brioche- Butterscotch- herbaceous

Accolade: 2 bicchieri, Gambero Rosso

A virtue found in the etymology of an ancient word: idem, or being the same. Cuvée Prestige, the essence of Franciacorta, Ca' del Bosco style. A jewel created in 2007 from thirty year's experience. Only the finest Chardonnay (75%), Pinot Nero (15%) and Pinot Bianco (10%) grapes from 134 vineyards, vinified separately and skillfully blended with reserves of the finest vintages (at least 20%) go into the magical rite of Cuvée creation. It will take 28 months of refinement on yeasts before this wine is ready to express all its richness and identity. A classic, well-balanced Franciacorta, pleasantly fresh and crisp.

Grape varieties Chardonnay 75%, Pinot Bianco 10%, Pinot Nero 15%.

Vineyards of provenance 96 Chardonnay vineyards planted an average of 27 years ago located in the municipalities of Erbusco, Adro, Cazzago San Martino, Corte Franca, Iseo and Passirano. 3 Pinot Bianco vineyards planted an average of 21 years ago located in the municipality of Passirano. 17 Pinot Nero vineyards planted an average of 19 years ago located in the municipalities of Erbusco, Provaglio d’Iseo and Passirano.

Harvest period First and second ten days of August. Average yield per hectare 7,500 kilograms of grapes, equivalent to 4,730 litres of wine (must-to-fruit ratio 63%).

Vinification The base wines for Cuvée Prestige are obtained from meticulously selected grapes skilfully vinified in full compliance with the Metodo Ca’ del Bosco. As soon as the grapes are picked, using small cases, they are graded and chilled. Each bunch is selected by experienced eyes before visiting our “berry spa”, an exclusive bunch washing and jet spray system that incorporates three soaking vats and a drying tunnel. After crushing in the absence of oxygen, all the musts for base wines ferment in temperature-controlled steel tanks, where the wines remain until the following March. Seven more months of ageing are necessary for the wine to clarify, mature and disclose the character of its vineyard of provenance. Subsequently, the wines are carefully blended with reserve wines from the best vintages (from 20% to 30%) in the magic ritual of making the cuvée. It is this special technique that imbues Cuvée Prestige with its distinctive character. The essence of Franciacorta made the Ca’ del Bosco way. Only after a maturation period that averages 25 months will this Franciacorta be ready to express all the sumptuous depth of its personality. Disgorgement takes place in the absence of oxygen using a unique system designed and patented by Ca’ del Bosco. The procedure avoids oxidative stress or the need for additional sulphites, making Ca’ del Bosco Franciacortas purer, more appealing and longer lived. Finally, every bottle is given an individual marking to ensure its traceability.

Tirage From April to June of the year after the harvest.

Maturation sur lies For an average of 25 months. Dosage at disgorgement Equivalent to four grams of sugar per litre.
