The 2001 vintage was the first for Franciacorta Dosage Zéro Noir, the fourth wine in the vintage line. The idea of making this varietal into a ‘pure’ wine dates back to 1980, when Maurizio Zanella and André Dubois, envisioning its potential, conceived the first Franciacorta made with 100% Pinot Nero, whose name was “Brut di Pinot Nero”. Dosage Zéro Noir is its worthy descendant, and rightly joins the Vintage Collection.
