Ca’ del Bosco Chardonnay embodies the territory’s vocation for coaxing out the nuances of the variety and the winemaker’s skill in transforming them into a great wine. It is obtained from meticulously selected grapes skilfully vinified in full compliance with the Metodo Ca’ del Bosco. Grapes from five superior vineyards are picked, using small cases, and then graded and chilled. Each bunch is selected by experienced cellar staff before visiting our “berry spa”, an exclusive air-bubble bunch-washing system that incorporates three soaking vats and a drying tunnel. After pressing in the absence of oxygen, only the best must from the first fraction is transferred for alcoholic fermentation in small oak casks made from selected wood seasoned for three years. The wine remains on its lees for 9 more months. During this time, malolactic fermentation is completed. “bâtonnage”, or lees stirring, is carried out every week to bring the wine to a peak of harmony on the nose and complexity on the palate. Later, the various parcels are blended, and the wine is bottled naturally by gravity flow. Innovative bottling systems ensure that the wine is not subjected to oxidative stress or disturbance and that no further sulphites are added. Integrity and healthfulness are guaranteed. Finally, every bottle is given an individual marking to ensure its traceability.

Winery

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 producing their still wines, a stellar Chardonnay and a brace of reds made using Bordeaux varieties.
