Grand Vintage

Franciacorta D.O.C.G

Pas Dosé Riserva

THE AUTHORITATIVE TASTE OF CA’ D’OR

 

It comes from our Grand Cru vineyards, planted with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. After 7 months for the first fermentation in small steel tanks, it rests for about 48 months, aging, maturing and refermenting in the bottle, in contact with selected lees, in the darkness and silence of the Cellar.

 

A Millesimato made of 55 % Chardonnay and 45 % Pinot Noir, at the same time powerful and delicious. This wine has a robust structure and a great personality, between tasting complexity and an extraordinary pleasantness, in total absence of sugars: notes that are combined with a long aftertaste that blends harmoniously with its fresh minerality.

Our Pas Dosé Riserva is the most eminent and representative product of the Ca’ d’Or sensory richness. It has an intense golden yellow color with copper hues. Made in purity, gives intense and complex fragrances on the nose, with peculiar notes of green tobacco, walnut and cassis recalls. The palate is elegant, harmonious, with a great body, structure and sapidity.

Very fine bubbles and refined elegance. The finish is long, strong and perfectly balanced.

Bottle Technical Data Sheet

 

Shape:
the shape is as original as it is useful for the process of aging in the wine cellar; its greater surface area, in fact, permits more contact between the liquid and the lees, allowing the sediment to release essential substances that enhance the expressive bouquet of our Franciacorta and consequently improve its taste and nose characteristics. The date 1501 marked in relief on the glass, recalls the long history of the Ca’ d’Or brand.

Glass:
Class A white glass for food products.

Decoration:
water colours etched on glass by means of a printing technique using steel frames to transfer the colour directly onto the bottle. The colours used are thermally fused and, after cooking at 600/620 °C, the screen printing is permanent. The colours and processing meet standards for use with food products, and are non-toxic. The metallic bronze colour of the mask, together with the collar in Antique Red, identify the type of wine in the bottle.

Cork:
an extremely high-quality achromatic cork made of cork microgranules from raw materials selected to preserve the taste of the wine.
