Dosage Zéro Vintage Collection, Franciacorta DOCG, Ca' del Bosco 2015
Franciacorta Vintage Collection is obtained from meticulously selected grapes skilfully vinified in full compliance with the Metodo Ca’ del Bosco. As soon as the grapes are picked, using small cases, they are graded and chilled. Each bunch is selected by experienced eyes before visiting our “berry spa”, an exclusive bunch washing and jet spray system that incorporates three soaking vats and a drying tunnel. After crushing in the absence of oxygen, all the musts for base wines ferment in small oak casks. Barrel maturation lasts for just five months to coax out maximum aromatic complexity and expressive power without jeopardising elegance. A pair of flying tanks enables the wines to be gravity-racked from the small oak casks into maturation tanks. Seven months after the harvest, it is time to create the cuvée. Vintage Collection Dosage Zéro 2015 is a masterly blend of 24 Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco and Pinot Nero base wines that imbue the final product with its uniquely sincere sensory profile, a superb expression of the territory and the growers who perceived its force and potential. Disgorgement takes place in the absence of oxygen using a unique system designed and patented by Ca’ del Bosco. The procedure avoids oxidative stress or the need for additional sulphites, making Ca’ del Bosco Franciacortas purer, more appealing and longer lived. Finally, every bottle is given an individual marking to ensure its traceability.
A pure, sincere Franciacorta, fruit of the finest expression of its extraordinary terroir and of the man who intuited its character and potential. Destined for the connoisseurs who love this transparent style. Delicate aromas of stone fruit, lemon custard and toasted almond carrying into a vibrant savory finish.
An excellent wine echoes the purity of shellfish and raw/cured fish such as bottarga. It is ideal with “Siberian” Caviar, West Coast oysters, sushi/sashimi.
