Annamaria Clementi Rosé

Harmony. A whispered sound. A hue hinted at. The perception of a fragrance. Perfection melds with subtlety in the balanced shades of a Franciacorta Rosé from pinot nero grapes only, shaped by hands that knew exactly when to separate the must from the skins during maceration. A moment caught to obtain the peerless deep pink hue before seven years of patient maturation coaxed out an aroma-laden bouquet of sublime finesse. Supreme balance on the palate, a unique shade of pink and a perlage of the tiniest bubbles. Cuvée Annamaria Clementi Rosé, a rare example of poise and excellence, is dedicated to the woman who founded Ca' del Bosco.

Annamaria Clementi Rosé is the quintessence of Pinot Nero vinified on its own with brief skin contact the Ca’ del Bosco way. Behind this superb sparkling wine lies the art of blending base wines from three long-established vineyards, wines that were obtained with brief skin contact at a temperature of 14 °C. Those few hours were sufficient to impart the distinctive deep pink hue, the harmony and the supreme aromatic finesse that mark out Annamaria Clementi Rosé in the bottle. All stages of vinification of the base wines are carried out in small oak casks from selected wood seasoned for at least three years, stored in deep cellars.
Alcoholic fermentation, malolactic fermentation and maturation in large wood took a total of eight months. Annamaria Clementi Rosé is obtained from a selection from the best barrels. The wine is drawn off by gravity and a pair of flying tanks transfers it, again by gravity flow, from the barrels to the blending tank.
At least eight more years passed as the wine aged on the lees acquiring the harmony on the nose and outstanding poise on the palate that make Annamaria Clementi such a peerless Franciacorta.
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.
