Tasting notes
Wisdom. Human trait of respectfully observing the passing of the seasons and the hand of man. An ability to see beyond appearances, it indicates the right time to prune the vines, to tend the vineyard and to harvest the grapes. Wisdom is combined with strength in the Wolf, who with stealthy gait and hypnotic stare anticipates the moves, while remaining in the wings, silent, observing and favoring harmony among things, as the events unfold. And while everything proceeds, only wisdom can guide man’s hand as he cultivates the vineyard, so that it will yield up Corte del Lupo Rosso, a wine with character, pleasant and convivial. The fruit of nature’s elements, Corte del Lupo Rosso is the expression of patience and skilled work, the incarnation of the philosophy and style of Ca’ del Bosco. Corte del Lupo Rosso rediscovers the local red varietals, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carménère, to combine the strength of the Wolf and the wisdom of man.

Sparkling Corte del Lupo DOC Curtefranca Rosso

From: £36.06

With this wine, Ca’ del Bosco’s intent was to rediscover and re-establish a traditional red grape blend of the area, with a preference once again for Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Carménère over Cabernet Sauvignon. A journey into the past to exalt the personality and fruitiness of Merlot, the elegance of Cabernet Franc and the roundness of Carménère. Cabernet Sauvignon is there to provide the much-needed backbone and thus impart balance and longevity. Two years are necessary for this wine to strike the right match between harmony on the nose and balance on the palate. This wine is the product of accurate grape sorting and expert winemaking, in full compliance with the Ca’ del Bosco Method. The grapes are hand-picked in 8 different vineyards, where they are placed in small crates on which a code is immediately stamped, just before they are cold-stored. Each bunch is selected by expert eyes and hands, and then goes through our exclusive “berry spa,” a special whirlpool-like wash for grape bunches, consisting of three soaking tanks, followed by thorough drying. Then the clusters are transported over the maceration vat, where they are destemmed, allowing the berries to naturally fall into vat. This eliminates the need for traditional pumping systems, which cause the skins to break and develop unwanted herbaceous hints. In the 2017 vintage, skin contact lasted 22 days for Merlot and Carménère, 23 days for Cabernet Franc, and 21 days for Cabernet Sauvignon. Alcoholic fermentation and maceration were controlled by accurately managing temperature and punching down the grape cap several times. The mass was mixed daily, using a pair of elevator tanks, with the wine on the bottom of the vat drawn off by gravity. The tanks, known as flying tanks, take the wine up to the top of the vat and pour it back in forcefully to submerge the “cap”. Nothing more natural and effective to gently extract color and tannins. The wine is finally drawn off and, while still warm, it is placed in small oak barrels. Only after malolactic fermentation – in mid-winter – is the wine racked and assembled into different product lots. The “Corte del Lupo Rosso” is thus created, and will continue ageing in oak and stainless steel for approximately 18 months, followed by gravity bottling, which is done in a most natural manner: thanks to our innovative long-nozzle filling tubes, the wine will rise from the bottom without lamination or shaking, and will not suffer from oxidative stress. No sulfites are added at this stage, to guarantee integrity and wholesomeness. Finally, each bottle is marked with a unique code, to ensure traceability.
