  • Product Description


    ROBERT PARKER: 92 POINTS
    "The NV Franciacorta Cuvée Prestige Brut is packaged in a squat and transparent bottle. This beautiful sparkling wine shows a unique aromatic profile with spicy notes of spearmint and fresh oregano leaf that pop to the top. Beyond those vertical aromas are heavier tones of stone fruit, honeydew melon and blanched almond. This Franciacorta (75% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Bianco and 15% Pinot Nero) offers spicy and vibrant aromatic tones that you don't find in its peers."

    WINEMAKER'S NOTE
    "Identity. 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. Perfect for any occasion."

    DESIGNATION
    Franciacorta. 

    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 in compliance with a rigorous winemaking protocol. The hand-picked grapes are coded by vineyard, chilled in a cold room and selected by experienced cellar staff before whole-bunch pressing. Alcoholic fermentation is 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. 

    ANALYTICAL DATA AT DISGORGEMENT
    Alcohol 12.5% Vol.; pH 3.15; Total Acidity 5.55 grams/litre; Volatile Acidity 0.35 grams/litre. 

    SULPHITES
    Total Sulphur Dioxide less than 53 milligrams/litre (maximum legal limit: 185 milligrams/litre).
