Winemakers description: The base wines of the Cuvée Prestige are the result of a careful selection of the grapes and a skilful vinification conducted in full compliance with the Ca 'del Bosco Method. The grapes, harvested by hand in small boxes, are classified and cooled.
Each bunch is selected by expert eyes and hands, and then benefits from exclusive "grape spa": a particular system of washing and hydromassage of the bunches consisting of three soaking tanks and a drying tunnel.
After pressing in the absence of oxygen, all the musts of the base wines ferment in thermo-conditioned steel tanks and remain here until the following March. Seven months of refinement are therefore necessary for the wine to clear up, mature and bring out the best character of the vines of origin.
The wines are then expertly assembled in the "magic rite" of creating the cuvée. Only after aging on the lees for at least 2 years this Franciacorta can express all its richness and identity. The dégorgement takes place in the absence of oxygen, using a unique system, designed and patented by Ca 'del Bosco. This avoids oxidative shocks and further additions of sulphites.
It makes our Franciacortas purer, more pleasant and longer-lived. Finally, each packaged bottle is uniquely marked, to guarantee its traceability.
