Cà Del Bosco - Chardonnay 2006 Ml. 750
To 12 months
There are moments without words that only sensations can define, feelings that reach the heart and become the rapture, joy and beauty of a moment to be treasured deep inside. The art of wine is one such moment, a masterpiece created by the talent that few possess, in which dedication and ability blend in a magical, mystical marriage with nature. The infinite in a single drop, fruit of a slow, devoted and meticulous passion. People, like territories, have a vocation. And so it was that a fifteen-year-old boy had a lightning intuition of what life could be like pursuing it. The meeting between young Maurizio 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.
Aptitude. Chardonnay, a white grape of French origin, is the most famous of the international grown-everywhere varieties because it gives its best wherever, retaining features that make it recognizable. Right from the first vintages this wine was praised by international critics who continue to consider it a reference for the finest Italian enology. Brightly hued, intensely scented, underscored with a hint of vanilla and a characteristic note of hazelnut. Its taste is full and rotund and its organoleptic structure is so intense as to be comparable to a red, yet it lingers in your senses for its extraordinary finesse.
|Manufacturer||Ca' Del Bosco|
|Ageing and Fining||After careful selection, the grapes taken from 7 elect vineyards are pressed whole and the first-portion must is poured into small oak barrels for alcoholic fermentation. Here it remains on its yeasts for another 9 months and, through battonage, reaches maximum harmony of bouquet and complexity of taste. Afterwards the different batches are blended and the final result is bottled totally without oxygen or agitation thanks to an innovative bottling system that preserves its inherent quality.|
