Franciacorta docg “DZ” Dosage Zero
The. Agr. Vezzoli
I'm 30 years that we know Giuseppe and his family, and ever since, we can really say about wine if it was poured out a lot. Great passion and competence of careful winemakers, that with a brilliant mind and a love for their vineyards to say the least visceral. The Vezzoli family have owned vineyards for more than a century and have been breeding Chardonnay Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir in some of the most beautiful lands in the Franciacorta area: Erbusco, Adro, Cologne and Capriolo. All with altitude beyond 200 meters, they have excellent exposures: basically North / South for the white berry and east / west for the dark berry. Thanks to the climate mitigated by the mountains on one side and Lake Iseo on the other, these areas have always stood out for mild temperatures and varied soil: from the moraine, sandy clay and glacial soils, all particularly suited to the production of grapes for sparkling wine. Those were the years 60 when the first bubbles began to appear, clearly inspired by the transalpine cousins, but the real "change of pace" occurred at the beginning of the years 2000. Vezzoli, together with other small realities of that period, he hypothesized the use of only the raw materials present in the vineyard: exclusively what Natura offers in order to produce Sparkling wines which are highly representative of the technical sensitivity of the winemaker and expression of the vineyards of origin. From 2008 the path of innovation and continuous research based above all on the work in the vineyard continues so as to avoid "corrections and adjustments" in the cellar. Solouva, "Only" what Nature gives. Dosage Zero is produced using the 50% Chardonnay and the 50% Pinot Noir harvested at the peak of their ripeness. I'm 8 the months of the first fermentation and then move on to at least 3 years in bottle on its lees. obviously, to top up it is used solo same product. The glass is pale straw yellow with a particularly fine and persistent perlage. The nose has a broad spectrum of aromas ranging from exotic fruit, like pineapple, with floral notes and also with hints of dry biscuits. It is decidedly dry on the palate thanks to the vigor of its bubbles and the exhilarating presence of minerality and flavor that characterize this blend in a fresh and citrusy finish. Difficult product to forget, more commonplace.
