Wisdom. Human characteristic respectful of the passing of the seasons and human labor. Able to see beyond things, she herself suggests the time of pruning, vineyard care and harvest. Wisdom along with strength, qualities inherent in the Wolf who, with his gait and hypnotic gaze, anticipates moves, while he remains out of the scene, silently observing and establishing harmony among things, in the succession of events. And while everything is happening, only wisdom can guide man in the work of the land, so that it will give him back Court of the Red Wolf, a wine of character, pleasant and convivial. Fruit of the elements of nature. Red Wolf Court, is an expression of human patience and care, as well as the embodiment of Ca’ del Bosco’s philosophy and style. Court of the Red Wolf, rediscovers the territory’s traditional red grape blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carménère to encapsulate the strength of the Wolf and the wisdom of man.

Merlot 38%, Cabernet Sauvignon 33%, Cabernet Franc 22%, Carménère 7%.

3 Merlot vineyards, with an average age of 26 years, located in the municipalities of Cazzago San Martino and Passirano.
3 Cabernet Sauvignon vines, 1 Cabernet Franc vineyard and 1 Carménère vineyard, with an average age of 27 years, located in the municipality of Passirano.

Ca’ del Bosco has decided to rediscover and re-evaluate the territory’s traditional red grape blend, returning to favor the Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Carménère varieties over Cabernet Sauvignon. A return to the past to enhance the fruit character of Merlot, the elegance of Cabernet Franc and the roundness of Carménère. The presence of Cabernet Sauvignon provides the essential backbone to impart balance and longevity. This wine is the result of a careful selection of grapes and skillful vinification conducted in full respect of the Ca’ del Bosco Method. Grapes from 8 different vineyards, hand-picked in small boxes, are promptly coded and cooled in cold storage. Each cluster is selected by expert eyes and hands, and then benefits from our exclusive “cluster spa.” A special system for washing and whirlpooling the clusters, through three soaking tanks and a system for complete drying. Next, each cluster is transported over the maceration vat. With destemming, the grapes fall into the vat, from above, by gravity. This eliminates traditional pumping systems, which are the cause of broken skins and unwanted herbaceous notes. In the 2018 Harvest, maceration in contact with the skins lasted 18 days for Merlot and Carménère, 19 days for Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Alcoholic fermentation and maceration were conducted by carefully managing temperature and punching down. Pumpovers were carried out daily, using a pair of elevating tanks into which the wine, tapped from the bottom of the vat, is transferred by gravity. The wine, carried aloft from the flying tanks, is poured into the vat, at high flow rate, to submerge the “cap.” Nothing could be more natural and effective for gently extracting color and tannins. On racking, the wines, still warm, are racked into small oak barrels. Only after malolactic fermentation, in the middle of winter, are the different batches racked and blended. Thus was born “Corte del Lupo Rosso,” which continues its aging in wood and steel for about 22 months. Then the wine is bottled by gravity, naturally. Thanks to innovative “long-cannula” taps, the wine rises from the bottom of the bottle without lamination, without shaking, and without oxidative shock. No addition of sulfites at this stage, ensuring integrity and wholesomeness.
Finally, each packaged bottle is uniquely marked to ensure traceability.

10-month minimum.
