In the area of Franciacorta, between Brescia and Bergamo, near Lake Iseo, this traditional sparkling wine is made. The mountains and the lake have a beneficial effect on the wine. The soil and the same grape varieties as in the champagne ensure that this wine has become a formidable competitor of the well-known champagnes.

A stone's throw from Lake Isseo, Paolo Radici established the Agricola Ronco Calino in 1996. The 10 hectare vineyard is managed by agronomist Leonardo Valenti, who, together with oenologist Francesco Polastri, is responsible for the quality of this house. Franciacorta brut DOCG is the appellation of origin of the best Italian appellation for sparkling wines. The wines from this region are most similar to French Champagnes. The soil composition and the grape varieties used are also similar.

The Franciacorta brut Millésimato has a golden yellow color and a fine sparkle. In the nose we mainly recognize ripe exotic fruit and nuts. Soft and complex taste. Long and expressive finish. Blessed. These Vintage bubbles are only made in the best years. This Ca' del Bosco Franciacorta gives the character of the unique area like no other. A unique wine; full, structured and intense.

Grape variety: 75% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Bianco, 15% Pinot Nero.
Wine type: Sparkling white wine bottle fermented.
Appellation: DOCG Franciacorta
