Vintage Collection Extra Brut

Vintage Collection Extra Brut

Power. A Franciacorta that channels the strength of Pinot Nero and the elegance of Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco.
This wine’s potential is best expressed with a low dosage, which guarantees a rich complexity over time.
A crescendo of aromas that cannot but surprise.

Data Sheet
Vintage Collection Extra Brut

The 2017 yields, among the lowest of the past fifty years but with grapes that delivered a perfect gustatory balance, convinced us that a permanent reduction in the dosage at disgorgement was the right path to follow. An extraordinary event that created the optimal conditions for concretizing the principle of purity that has been the ultimate goal of the Ca’ del Bosco method for years: a process that led to the birth of a new wine, re-created under the aegis of this purpose: Vintage Collection Extra Brut. With the 2017 harvest, the Vintage Collection – Dosage Zéro, Extra Brut and Satèn – completes its gustatory ensemble and provides consumers with three different expressions of the same vintage year.
