Character. Among the Franciacortas from Ca' del Bosco this is the one that best expresses the character of the territory and the particularities that each year brings. Weather always writes unpredictable stories and their finales are the products of love between man and earth. Since 1978 the Vintage Collection Brut has been made solely in the finest years. The result of careful vinification but above all of lengthy refinement that enhances its characteristics: four years of aging on yeasts. A unique Franciacorta, structured, full-bodied, intense and persistent. A wine for big occasions, and especially fine with haute cuisine seafood.

TASTING NOTES 

Straw yellow with golden reflections magnificent.
Variegated, rich and heady,fresh and evolved.Sensations of fresh fruit such as apple, pear, apricot, lemon and bitter orange that are followed by sensational notes of yeast bread with a hint of honey and vanilla.
Dry, rich and fruity, structured; repeated notes felt on the nose of apple and pear. The aromatic persistence is remarkable.

PRODUCER 
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.

WINERY AND VINIFICATION
Franciacorta Vintage Collection is obtained from meticulously selected grapes skilfully vinified in full compliance with the Metodo Ca’ del Bosco. As soon as the grapes are picked, using small cases, they are graded and chilled. Each bunch is selected by experienced eyes before visiting our “berry spa”, an exclusive bunch washing and jet spray system that incorporates three soaking vats and a drying tunnel. After crushing in the absence of oxygen, all the musts for base wines ferment in small oak casks. Barrel maturation lasts for just five months to coax out maximum aromatic complexity and expressive power without jeopardising elegance. A pair of flying tanks enables the wines to be gravity-racked from the small oak casks into maturation tanks. Seven months after the harvest, it is time to create the cuvée. Vintage Collection Brut 2014 is a masterly blend of 22 Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco and Pinot Nero base wines that imbue the final product with its uniquely rich, complex sensory profile. The higher proportion of Pinot Nero brings structure and nobility of character, which are further enhanced by leisurely ageing in bottle. Disgorgement takes place in the absence of oxygen using a unique system designed and patented by Ca’ del Bosco. The procedure avoids oxidative stress or the need for additional sulphites, making Ca’ del Bosco Franciacortas purer, more appealing and longer lived. Finally, every bottle is given an individual marking to ensure its traceability.
