Ca’ Del Bosco ‘Cuvee Annamaria Clementi’ Franciacorta
Like the exclusive commitment needed to make this Franciacorta dedicated to Annamaria Clementi, founder of Ca’ del Bosco and Maurizio Zanella’s mother. No compromises, no concessions. Only the finest grapes from the various crus are earmarked for this icon wine. And only in the finest years. Meticulous vinification and very lengthy bottle refinement – at least seven years on yeasts. This is how a great wine is created, unique, magnificently golden and with ultra-fine perlage. Extraordinarily complex bouquet, exceptionally full and persistent taste. An absolute Franciacorta.
Cuvee 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 ‘berry spa,’ a 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 own 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 26 base wines is drawn off to go into Cuvee Annamaria Clementi.
