Vintage Millesimato Riserva 2013

2013 vintage was distinguished by two main trends: a difficult start, followed by a second period that rescued the situation, and meant that with the particularly calm climate in the months of September and October harvesting operations were delayed with very satisfactory results even if it started 15 days later than usual. What undoubtedly made the difference was making the right choice on when to act based on climate, variety and pedoclimatic conditions to make 2013 an excellent 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.
