The Story

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