Obtained from Cabernet, Merlot, Nebbiolo and Barbera this is one of the first wines that Ca' del Bosco produced. (It was first produced in 1975.) Although it could not be considered a demanding wine, it is certainly not run of the mill. It is a grainy, ruby colour with a purple reflection. It has a fresh, winey aroma which contains an exuberant note of red fruit (plums and cherries in particular), a slightly herby hint and a consistent underlying tone of spices (particularly pepper) and a touch of licquorice. It tastes fruity and fresh, and the hint of fruit in the aroma is discernable in the mouth. It is well-structured and mellow with a moderate underlying note of wood. The taste is long-lasting with a very slightly bitterish finish.

The producer

It all began many years ago when Maurizio Zanella, who at the time was a young man, stood in his mother's country house, which was then a genuine 'cottage in the woods or "ca' del bosco"', and overwhelmed with his passion for the Champagne decided to produce a Franciacorta that could successfully compete with France. What might have remained a young man's dream has instead become a marvellous reality. In 1968, after years of hardship, investment, experience, the steady improvement of the grapevines in the company's 97 hectares of vineyards, the introduction of technology and scientific research, Ca'del Bosco is today one of the best wine-making companies in Italy, and certainly one of the major protagonists in the renaissance of Italian wine. It is a leader in the high quality spumante sector because it was the company that first discovered the best way of expressing the qualitative potential of Franciacorta. Not content with the excellent results that they have achieved with their spumanti "metodo classico", Ca' del Bosco went on to develop still wines from international and Italian grapevines, and continue to compete on an equal footing with some of the most important wines in the world. This claim would seem presumptions were it not for the fact that Ca' del Bosco wines have received prizes and acclaim in numerous international wine tastiness. This is without counting the large number of enthusiastic reviews that the sternest wine critics in the world have showered on the company's products.
