winemaking The base wines of the Cuvée Prestige are the result of a careful selection of the grapes and a wise one winemaking conducted in full respect for 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, to then benefit from the exclusive "terme degli acini". A particular system of washing and hydromassage of the bunches, through three soaking tanks and a drying tunnel. After pressing in the absence of oxygen, all the musts of the base wines ferment in temperature-controlled steel tanks and remain here until the following March. Seven months of aging they are therefore necessary for the wine to clear up, mature and bring out the best character of the vineyards of origin. The wines are then expertly assembled in the "magic rite" of creating the cuvée. Only after a aging on the lees of at least 2 years this Franciacorta can express all its richness and identity.
