Precision. Like the harmonious notes of a complex orchestral score, every stage of production has to be perfectly timed. Vintage Collection Dosage Zéro has no added liqueur d'expédition (the dosing syrup added in minimal amounts to the other Franciacortas during degorging). A pure, sincere Franciacorta, fruit of the finest expression of its extraordinary terroir and of the man who intuited its character and potential.

TASTING NOTES
Franciacorta Dosage Zero Vintage by Ca’ del Bosco is a structured and full-bodied sparkling wine, aged on the lees for about 48 months. Scents fo bread, citrus and nuts emerge from a dry and elegant texture

FOOD PAIRING

Destined for the connoisseurs who love this style. An excellent aperitif, the optimal match for shellfish and raw fish. 

PRODUCER 
There are moments without words that only sensations can define, feelings that reach the heart and become the rapture, joy and beauty of a moment to be treasured deep inside. The art of wine is one such moment, a masterpiece created by the talent that few possess, in which dedication and ability blend in a magical, mystical marriage with nature. The infinite in a single drop, fruit of a slow, devoted and meticulous passion. People, like territories, have a vocation. And so it was that a fifteen-year-old boy had a lightning intuition of what life could be like pursuing it. The meeting between young Maurizio Zanella and gentle Franciacorta, when his mother moved to Erbusco and planted the first vineyard, was the initial contact with what would be the love of his life. But it was after a trip to Champagne, to the famous maisons whose wine had always fascinated and inspired him, that Maurizio returned with the unshakable idea of making something similar. What was once a house in a chestnut wood became one of the most trailblazing wineries in Italy. Since then a single principle has been defining the essence of Ca’ del Bosco: the quest for excellence.

WINERY & VINIFICATION 
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.
