||Maurizio Zanella is separately vinifying the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc grapes from the best vineyards of Ca 'del Bosco. The grapes are harvested by hand in small boxes, they are readily classified and cooled. Each cluster is selected by eye and skilled hands, before being transported above the vat maceration. With de-stemming the grapes fall into the vat from above by gravity. This avoids the use of traditional systems of pumping, which would create unwanted herbaceous notes. In the 2009 harvest, the fermentation and maceration were conducted for 22 days, carefully controlling the temperature and pressing. The replacements were performed daily, using a pair of tanks elevators in which the wine, tapped from the bottom of the vat, is transferred by gravity. Wine, brought by tanks flying at high altitude, is poured into the vat, high flow to drown the "hat". Nothing more natural and effective way to gently extract the color and tannins.
||After racking the wine, still hot, are poured into small oak barrels, new 60%, obtained from selected woods, seasoned for at least three years. Only after the malolactic fermentation, in winter, we are racked and the assembly of the different lots. Thus it was born the Maurizio Zanella, which continues its aging in wood for about 17 months. Later, the different batches are blended and the wine is bottled by gravity, naturally. Thanks to an innovative bottling system, the wine does not undergo oxidative shock, concussions and further additions of sulfites. His integrity and his health are guaranteed.
