Join us this Thursday, October 15th at 5:00PM when Wally’s President Christian Navarro will be catching up with Ca’ del Bosco founder Maurizio Zanella in a live virtual tasting on Wally’s TV. Maurizio is the king of Franciacorta and Ca’ del Bosco is the world’s leading producer of this majestic sparkling wine. Maurizio’s introduction to the world of wine came in the 1960s when his mother acquired a small hillside property called “Ca’ del Bosc”. Having studied agriculture, Zanella is an extensively travelled wine cosmopolitan who has put into practice in his native Franciacorta what he learned in France, particularly Burgundy and Bordeaux. Zanella transformed what was a house in the chestnut woods of Lombardy into one of the country’s most modern wineries, becoming one of the leading figures in Italy’s wine renaissance. Place your order today and taste along with Christian and Maurizio to learn about the story and people behind this iconic winery.

Cuvée Prestige Extra Brut Franciacorta MV
Wally's Price: $40
The NV Franciacorta Cuve Prestige Brut offers a sophisticated and stylish presentation with exotic fruit, baked bread, peach cobbler and Golden Delicious apple. This pretty Cuve (made with 75% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Bianco and 15% Pinot Nero) offers a great sense of richness and creaminess that adds to the fine and silky nature of the perlage. It has the natural acidity and bright freshness to pair with raw seafood. -Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

Cuvée Prestige Rosé Extra Brut Franciacorta MV
Wally's Price: $59
The NV Franciacorta Cuve Prestige Ros is a blend of 80% Pinot Nero and 20% Chardonnay. It exhibits a pale pink color that has evidently been studied and carefully executed. That same attention to detail is applied to the bouquet. Delicate and vibrant aromas of forest berry and cassis emerge slowly from the glass. It also shows subtle yeast aromas of baked bread or croissant. The wine's texture is lean and firm, and the soft effervescence serves to keep the palate clean. - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

Maurizio Zanella 2016
Wally's Price: $90
Personality. The first wine bearing its creator's signature - Maurizio Zanella - on the label, proudly celebrating the passion of Ca' del Bosco's founder. A wine embodying a perfect blend of a territory and its style. A great wine, surely among the jewels contributing to the Italian wine renaissance. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc selected from the winery's finest vineyards, skillfully vinified and refined in small oak barrels guarantee a rock-solid wine, potent yet harmonious, able to mature for years. - Producer Notes
