You will like to know that…

The wines of the Franciacorta have an innate quality and are recognized as one of the best representations of the great Italian wine heritage. The cellar Ca' del Bosco needs no presentation in terms of reputation, more than deserved, which is immediately identified with the guarantee of care and quality.

In the usual style of the house, Cuvée Prestige Brut represents in one fell swoop both the prestigious winery that produces it and the entire area of Franciacorta. This excellent wine, born in 2007, is produced using the selection of the best Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc grapes. This cuvée, after the rigorous vinification protocol to obtain a result that is difficult to match, presents itself with its great character, a fascinating and seductive limpidity, and a truly fresh taste that, with its perfect balance with acidity, reaffirms once again the fame of the Ca' del Bosco style.

Its pelage is very fine and comes close, without fear, to the quality of the best French champagne. Very soft on the palate, very pleasant, persistent in a delicate way, has all the characteristics, therefore, to be the protagonist of your most elegant aperitifs. In addition to being an aperitif sparkling wine, it is also excellent for accompanying important haute cuisine dishes.

The Winery

Ca' del Bosco

Ca' del Bosco

The cellar of Ca 'del Bosco, surrounded by green vineyards and woods, is an ideal travel in enology: stone, steel, wood, glass. The "core technology" of the beats with passion and precision, artfully lit and framed by the intense green of the park. The architecture blends harmoniously amongst the hills of Franciacorta. Shapes and colors are inspired by the shades of the forest: a wave gray-green reminiscent of the line of the hill and the trend of vineyard. Everything is designed to accommodate the rhythms of nature and transform the precious fruits in fine wines. Freshly harvested in the appropriate boxes, and classified according to the arrival in the vineyard of origin, the grapes are cooled in special cells. Only clusters that have passed the stringent selection come to the crushing: the experience of Ca 'del Bosco has given rise to a unique technique that allows the total wine production in the absence of oxygen and handling of wines without flapping. A couple of tanks "flying" allows the transfer of musts and wines by gravity, thanks to the principle of communicating vessels. Long underground cellars in stone, with temperature and humidity are constantly monitored, cradling the wine aging in small oak barrels.Controlled atmosphere environments, innovative bottling lines, plugs checked one by one by an optical reader and machines designed and manufactured by Ca 'del Bosco guarantee in every bottle wine more healthy and long life. At this point begins the period of aging: will the passage of time and the quiet love of vintners do the rest.

It has a perlage most fine, golden yellow color, rich scent; to the taste it is elegant, soft, but also structured and much persistent one. Characteristics that of it make an optimal sparkling wine for the aperitif but in a position to accompanying good part of the meal.
