How to serve

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.

4/5

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.

A good sparkling to finish the meal properly. The best Chardonnay to enjoy with friends.
It has a very nice colour. Reminds me of other sparkling wines, aromas of yeast. Flashy flavours of red fruits.

We had it with a pizza. We drank the whole bottle at once with friends and a good conversation.
It has a light yellow colour. On the nose daffodil is especially noted on this Ca' del Bosco Cuvée Prestige Blanc Magnum. The wine was ok.
