Technical Details

This wine is a blend of Chardonnay (75%), Pinot Nero (15%) and Pinot Bianco (10%). The handpicked grapes from 134 vineyards were vinified individually with reserves of the best vintages (at least 20%) going into the Cuvée Prestige blend. The grapes were chilled before whole-bunch pressing. The wine spent 28 months on yeasts before being ready for disgorgement in the absence of oxygen (a system patented by Ca'del Bosco) – this avoids the need for additional sulphites. The residual sugar is 4g/L.
