Winemaking

The grapes used for Corte di Lupo Bianco originate from 11 historic vineyards with an average age of 25 years, which are planted with Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco. After the grapeshave been pressed, the must is aged for 6 months on the fine lees, one quarter in used French barriques and three quarters in steel tanks. The two parts are then combined and the wine is bottled.

Our tasting note

Bright straw yellow colour in the glass. Fresh stone fruit notes of apricot, a hint of lime and apple on the nose. All underlined with a delicate wood aroma. Plenty of spice and a mineral, salty note on the palate round off the ripe fruit. Perfectly balanced, long finish.

Ca' del Bosco

The Ca' del Bosco vineyard, which translates as "house in the woods", was founded in 1968 by Annamaria Clementi Zanella and her son Maurizio in the municipality of Erbusco, at the heart of the hilly Franciacorta region. Maurizio, 17 years old at that time, was obsessed with the vision of producing the best Italian sparkling wine. With extensive dedication and drive, he succeeded in realising his dream and leading Ca' del Bosco on to become one of the most renowned wineries in Italy. Maurizio Zanella is considered one of the pioneers of the Italian sparkling wine movement south of Lake Iseo and he is the current president of the DOC consortium. Furthermore, in 2003 Ca' del Bosco was awarded the title of "Winery of the Year" by the Italian wine guide Gambero Rosso. Year after year, Ca' del Bosco continues to confirm the high quality s tandards of its cult wines, which are unique in their unmistakable style.
