Harvest

2014. A winter-not winter, almost a very long autumn, brought us to the first stages of the vegetative cycle about ten days early. Budding took place regularly. The weather conditions throughout the month of May and until the first half of June were favourable, with little rainfall and temperatures above average with a strengthened phenological advance. But then everything changed: starting from the third ten days of June we no longer saw high pressure again and the weather was dominated by continuous passages of Atlantic disturbances. Between July and August more than 400mm of rain fell, temperatures were consistently colder than normal and the vines gradually slowed down; they arrived during the harvest with leaf systems fatigued by bad weather.

The harvest began on August 16th, with the Pinot noirs, followed by the harvest of the Chardonnays. A vintage from Franciacorta above all thanks to the chardonnay which, due to its rusticity, has allowed us to develop Franciacortas that are intact, taut and with surprising elegance.
Average yield per hectare: 7,800 kilograms of grapes, equivalent to 3,040 liters of wine (yield in wine: 39%).

Winemaking

Annamaria Clementi is the fruit of the search for excellence, both in the vineyard and in the cellar. In compliance with the Ca' del Bosco Method, the grapes, harvested by hand in small boxes, are promptly coded and cooled in cold storage. Each bunch is selected by expert eyes and hands, to then benefit from our exclusive "bunch spa". A particular washing and hydromassage system for the bunches, using three soaking tanks and a system for complete drying. The base wines are obtained exclusively from very first pressing musts. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in small oak barrels made with selected wood and seasoned for at least 3 years. Here it remains on its yeasts for another 6 months, also carrying out the malolactic fermentation. No compromise, no concession: only the wine from the best barrels, of the 22 base wines of origin, is tapped to give rise to Annamaria Clementi. A pair of flying tanks transfer the base wines by gravity from the barriques to the assembly tank. This is followed by bottling and a very long refinement in contact with yeasts, which lasts for more than 8 years to make its profile unique: an absolute Franciacorta. Dégorgement occurs in the absence of oxygen, using a system unique in the world, designed and patented by Ca' del Bosco. This avoids oxidative shock and further additions of sulphites and makes our Franciacorta purer, more pleasant and longer-lived. Finally, each packaged bottle is uniquely marked to ensure traceability.
