Designation: Sebino Rosso I.G.T. Vineyards of provenance: Two Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards planted an average of 26 years ago located in the municipality of Erbusco. One Merlot vineyard planted an average of 24 years ago located in the municipality of Cazzago San Martino. One Cabernet Franc vineyard planted an average of 23 years ago located in the municipality of Passirano. Harvest period: 30 September 2008. Average yield per hectare: 8,700 kilograms of grapes, equivalent to 5,050 litres of wine (must-to-fruit ratio 58%). Vinification: Maurizio Zanella is obtained from the separate fermentation of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc grapes from Ca’ del Bosco’s finest vineyards. As soon as the grapes are picked, using small cases, they are graded and chilled. Each bunch is selected by expert cellar staff before being transported over the maceration vat. Destemming causes the berries to fall into the vat from above by gravity. This avoids the traditional pumping systems that would produce unwanted herbaceous aromas. At the 2008 harvest, alcoholic fermentation and maceration took 22 days, with careful monitoring of temperature and punch-downs. Pump-overs were performed daily using a pair of lift tanks in which the wine, drawn off from the bottom of the vat, is transferred by gravity. The wine is lifted by the flying tanks and poured into the high-capacity vat to submerge the cap. There is no more natural or effective way of delicately extracting colour and tannins. The still-warm wines are drawn into small oak casks, 60% of which are new, from selected wood seasoned for at least three years. Only in midwinter, when malolactic fermentation is complete, is the wine racked and the various lots blended. This is how we make Maurizio Zanella, which continues to mature in wood for about 14 months. Later, the various parcels are blended and the wine is bottled naturally by gravity flow. Innovative bottling systems ensure that the wine is not subjected to oxidative stress or disturbance, and that no further sulphites are added. Integrity and healthfulness are guaranteed. Finally, every bottle is given an individual marking to ensure its traceability. Bottling: 14 April 2010. Bottle ageing: Three years and eight months. Data at bottling: Alcohol 13.5% Vol.; pH 3.53; Total Acidity 4.60 grams/litre; Volatile Acidity 0.41 grams/litre. Sulphites: Total Sulphur Dioxide less than 40 milligrams/litre (maximum legal limit: 150 milligrams/litre).

Ca' Del Bosco

Product by: Ca' Del Bosco

The meeting between youngMaurizio Zanella and gentle Franciacorta, when his mother moved to Erbusco and planted the first vineyard, was the initial contact with what would be the love of his life. But it was after a trip to Champagne, to the famous maisons whose wine had always fascinated and inspired him, that Maurizio returned with the unshakable idea of making something similar. What was once a house in a chestnut wood became one of the most trailblazing wineries in Italy. Since then a single principle has been defining the essence of Ca’ del Bosco: the quest for excellence.
