TOP ZERO PÀS DOSÈ 2008
ITALIAN FINE CHAMPENOISE SPARKLING WINE
Olptrepo’ Pavese is a triangle of land beyond the Po river; dry climate in winter and gently breezy in summer. It is an almost unbroken carpet of vineyards: enough to be considered one of the Italian areas where the best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes grow.
Like in the past, as today Giorgi is the one of the best champenoise method sparkling wine producers. Since 1875, the first generation of Giorgi wine producers, they made sparkling wines following the traditional method, with long second fermentation aging.
The Top Zero sparkling wine is the symbol of Giorgi’s centuries of experience.
The grapes are selected from six different Pinot Nero Cru vineyards, old Cru vines which produce only a few grape bunches each. The wine is a cuvèe of Pinot Nero from three different vintages, 2008, 2009 and 2010. The second fermentation process began in 2011, taking place over six years and eight months.
The result is a fine sparkling wine, really soft in the mouth and characterized by a complex aroma. Top Zero won the 3 Bicchieri Gambero Rosso award as best Italian sparkling wine in 2018.
