The Cuvée Prestige Edizione 42 is the forty-second edition in the multivintage series of Ca 'del Bosco, which every year interprets the thousand shades of Franciacorta. In this case it expresses the great personality of 139 different wines that compose it, coming from 141 vineyard particles and from 4 different vintages of the precious reserve wines of the renowned Ca 'del Bosco collection.
The history of the Ca 'del Bosco winery has the fanciful connotations of the fairy tale, of a dream that is realized between illuminated visions that go beyond reality. It all began in the mid-1960s when Annamaria Clementi Zanella purchased a house in the hills in Erbusco in the heart of Franciacorta surrounded by a chestnut grove and locally called "Ca 'del bosc". It's here that his young son Maurizio was struck on the wine route when his mother planted the first vineyard. A love at first sight that continues in the Cahmpagne region where what was initially an ethereal dream becomes a clear vision, and returned to its wood in the Brescia area at the beginning of the 70s, giving life to what will be one of the most modern and advanced Italian wineries, to whom credit goes to having been able to fully express the great wine potential of a land dedicated to wine.
The Cuvée Prestige Edition 42 is the essence of the variety of souls of Franciacorta, an expression of different terroirs but corresponding to the unique heritage of the Ca 'del Bosco vineyards, the highest in the region, the result of years and years of hard work. An obsessive care of every single soil according to the dictates of organic agriculture, enhancing its great biodiversity. The grapes at the base of Edition 42 are of the Chardonnay, Pinot Nero and Pinot Bianco varieties for most of the 2017 harvest, characterized by low yield and excellent quality, with reserve wines from the 2014, 2015 and 2016 vintages. The harvest is strictly a hand, with selection of the bunches that will benefit from the "grape spa", a complex system of washing and hydromassage by means of soaking tubs and drying tunnels. After blasting in the absence of oxygen, the musts of the base wines ferment in steel at a controlled temperature until March, and refine for a further 7 months during which the clarification phases follow one another and the maturation expresses the best of the character of the individual vineyards. Followed by the magical rite of creating the cuvée, and 2 years of aging on the lees with subsequent degorgement in the absence of oxygen according to a patent by Ca 'del Bosco. At the end of the process, each bottle is uniquely marked to guarantee its uniqueness and traceability. The result is a wine of extraordinary aromatic breadth and a pleasantly fresh balanced taste.
