A prestigious recognition for Castello Bonomi’s Dosage Zéro, which has been awarded the renowned Tre Bicchieri (Three Glasses) by Gambero Rosso.
The Franciacorta Dosage Zéro 2011 by Castello Bonomi has obtained the Tre Bicchieri (Three Glasses) in this year’s Vini d’Italia 2021 guide by Gambero Rosso. This achievement is the result of the work carried out over the years by Chef de Cave Luigi Bersini, the Castello Bonomi team, assisted by Professor Leonardo Valenti from the University of Milan, and the brothers Roberto and Carlo Paladin, who have been leading the company since 2008.
2011, a winning vintage for a high-quality Dosage Zéro
The 2011 vintage is considered by the Consorzio Tutela del Franciacorta as the best harvest of the last 15 years. Franciacorta Dosage Zéro 2011 is the result of the extraordinary quality of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes and an 84-month refinement on the lees in the historic cellars. The exceptional quality of this vintage allowed Castello Bonomi to express its philosophy through even longer refinements. The Franciacorta Dosage Zéro ranks among the best vintages of Franciacorta produced by the company.
Dosage Zéro, the wine that defies time
For Castello Bonomi, Dosage Zéro represents the best way to demonstrate the desire to create wines that defy time, a patient and respectful work of the territory and terroir that brings great satisfaction. Dosage Zéro combines the pursuit of perfection and uniqueness in the best vintages with the naturalness of a cellar choice that excludes any compromise.
