Antica Fratta's Franciacorta Nature Dosaggio Zero "Essence" is a millesimato that makes expressive purity its trump card. It is a classic method that was born among the hills of Monticelli Brusati, in one of the most vocated areas of Franciacorta, which can boast ancient origins in the field of viticulture. The blend is made with a preponderant percentage of Chardonnay, combined with a quota of Pinot Noir. The extraordinary quality of the grapes, ripe and aromatically rich, allows the creation of a Pas Dosé of great gustatory balance, which conquers with aromas, intense and complex, crossed by a refreshing mineral vein.

Nature Dosaggio Zero "Essence" is a Franciacorta made by Antica Fratta, a winery that began producing Metodo Classico excellence in 1979, but had been involved in viticulture since the mid-19th century in the area northeast of Lake Iseo. The vineyard estate covers about 35 hectares, planted with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Thanks to the cool, mild climate and soils consisting mainly of limestone and clay, the classic Champagne grapes provide excellent grapes for sparkling wine making. Once the harvest operations are completed, the grapes are softly pressed and the must is vinified in white to make the base wines. After a few months, the final cuvée is created and re-fermented in the bottle according to the Classical Method with a stay on the lees for 36 months.

Dosaggio Zero "Essence" is a Franciacorta Nature produced by Antica Fratta with the intention of making a label capable of expressing the absolutely faithful way the characteristics of the vintage. It is the right bottle for those who are looking for the most authentic expression of the grapes of the vintage, without using reserve wines or sugar dosage. The end result is a Franciacorta with a light yellow color with golden highlights and a delicate, continuous perlage. Aromas of ripe yellow-fleshed fruit, tropical hints, dried fruit, nuances of bread crust and spices give a bouquet intense and complex, which anticipates a long, harmonious and persistent sip. The closure is marked by savory sensations and a lively citrus freshness. A bottle for purists.
