2013 DosaggioZero Millesimato, Colline della Stella, Franciacorta

The vintage offering from the estate, this spends four years at least on the lees. The result is a savoury, complex, stunning sparkling wine from the north of Italy. Notes of peaches and hazelnuts, with oodles of minerality on the finish. Serious and long.

2013 DosaggioZero Millesimato, 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.
