Lead Time 5 day lead-time required Why?

More than one thousand years ago, in A.D. 958 or 959, the Italian King Berengario II gave to Rambaldo, ancestor of the Collalto family, the area called Corte Lovadina. The Collalto family still owns land in Susegana in the province of Treviso. Approximately 160 acres are planted in the Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore region with vineyards located between Susegana and Collalto. The vines are planted on a steep south-southeast facing slope between 150-1500 feet. The soils are mainly calcareous and clay. The Valdobbiadene Superiore Brut and Extra Dry are made from select grapes, harvested early and fermented at low temperature in stainless steel tanks to enhance delicacy and acidity. Lampo is produced using grapes from Treviso and Valdobbiadene. Following a second fermentation using the Charmat method, the wine is filtered to separate the yeasts prior top bottling. Borgoluce is firmly rooted in sustainable farming methods. This means limiting environmental impact and reducing the use of pesticides.
