N/V DosaggioZero Uno, Colline della Stella, Franciacorta

First introduced to us by Manfred Ing, winemaker at Querciabella, this is a beautiful sparkling from the shores of Lake Iseo. There’s notes of peach and just a lick of bread dough, with fine acidity and wonderful finesse and salinity on the finish. This is a fizz that is just so easy to enjoy.

N/V DosaggioZero Uno, Colline della Stella, Franciacorta
Colline della Stella

In the late 1990s, young winemaker Andrea Arici, under whose name this estate is also known, decided to nurture some old, overgrown terraced vineyards on the northern border of the Franciacorta appellation. Still in his 20s, he made his first vintage from these old vines, situated on pure limestone, in 2002. He doesn’t use any dosage (additional sugar) in his wines, preferring his Pinot Noir and Chardonnay-based sparkling to show the minerality and salinity of the terroir clearly. This is one of the most crystalline Franciacortas we’ve tasted.
