2008 Ca Del Bosco Vintage Brut Franciacorta
Absolute. In other words, no limits, a constantly evolving value. 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. Cuvée Annamaria Clementi is the product of an unremitting quest for excellence in vineyard and cellar. The base wines are obtained exclusively from first-pressing musts. Alcoholic fermentation takes place only in small oak casks, made from selected wood seasoned for at least three years. The wine remains on its own lees for six more months, during which time malolactic fermentation is completed. No compromises and no concessions. Only wine from the best barrels of the 25 base wines is drawn off to go into Cuvée Annamaria Clementi. A pair of flying tanks transfers the wine by gravity flow from the barrels to the blending tank. Unhurried lees contact continues for more than seven years to shape the wine’s unique sensory profile. An absolute Franciacorta. 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.
