At the end of the project, after more than 110,000 hours of processing, here is the wine.
Finally, it is possible to explore the complexity of a wine out of the ordinary, deeply characterized by the Terroir and the uniqueness of each vintage.
Each vintage is different from the others and it must be produced individually with patience and respect for nature.
The climatic trend is never constant and creates many combinations with the ecosystem of a specific vineyard.
To propose a vintage wine means to try to enhance the natural variable complexity in a wine.
The result obtained is of great personality and becomes fascinating for those who look for the involvement in the diversity.
The choice of avoiding any Liqueur d’expédition is consistent with the project of enhancing the diversity of vintage–vineyard.
Only by avoiding the dosage with sugar and spirits the characteristics of the ZERO140 remain as pure as possible.
In this way you can appreciate the structure and the great complexity achieved by a wine that was born great in the vineyard and which is refined with a processing of over 110,000 of uninterrupted hours.

The 2010 is the sixth vintage of the extreme Zero 140 project.
The vintage 2010, the preferred one of Enrico Serafino winery, had the right amount of rainfall and no excessive heat.
Like all our Pas Dosé, this Zero 140 is a full expression of the terroir of origin. The decision to avoid any dosage in the liquor d’expédition as well as the late disgorgement allowed us to explore the limit of the potential of the appellation.
The desire to achieve the complete representation of this appellation is the incentive that pushes us to catch, overcome and be surprised by the extreme limits of its quality expression.
Finally on March 1, 2023, Zero 140 Mesi Riserva Pas Dosé 2010 sixth Docg of the 140 series has completed its journey and is ready to enter our lives and take us 13 years back in time with a rare and precious act.
Using color theory, according to the tradition, we dedicated the vintage to Pluto recognizable by the black/gold color hand-painted on the bottom of each bottle.
Passing the baton to this new vintage is the previous vintage 2009, which won the 2023 Wine Oscar as the best sparkling wine during the gala dinner organized by Bibenda.
