Vintage Millesimato 2016

2016 was certainly one of the longest-lasting vegetative cycle in recent years. In fact, from the end of February throughout March, the temperatures dropped and there was plenty of rain. The “late” cold led to a delay in the phenological phases of about 10 days. This delay was made up for during the months of August and moreover in September. Full ripening was achieved in all cases and wines show excellent balance, big bouquets and great structure. The good quantity allows 2016 to be remembered as an outstanding vintage.

Winemaking Information

FERMENTATION PROCESS: Grape bunches are hand-sorted on a vibrant table and softly pressed in a nitrogen inert environment with yield in free-run must of 45%.
This process is “100% screw conveyor free” to handle grapes as gently as possible.

The must is fermented in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature and kept 6 months on lees with bâtonnage.

SPARKLING METHOD: The foam formation is carried out according to the traditional method of fermentation in the bottle, with aging on lees for at least 72 months and late disgorgement. We proudly avoid any liqueur d’expédition realising ZERO as Pas Dosé.

The difference is...

ZERO PAS DOSÉ is the sparkling wine that best represents Enrico Serafino Alta Langa. The complexity of terroir is fully expressed thanks to the meticulous execution of each step from the vine to the wine.
The firm decision to avoid any liqueur d’expédition as well as late disgorgement allow ZERO PAS DOSÉ to affirms its greatly appreciated singularity.
