Vintage Collection Dosage Zéro Noir

Vintage Collection Dosage Zéro Noir

In the heart of the Belvedere vineyards, 466 meters high on the hillsides south of Lake Iseo is the birthplace of Dosage Zéro Noir. A blanc de noirs that is a combination of austerity, tautness and expressive rigor, without any dosage, in order to avoid tampering with its truest and most instinctive expression.

Data Sheet
Vintage Collection Dosage Zéro Noir

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.
