2018 Vigna San Lorenzo "Col Tamarie, Veneto Italy
There is such a great story to tell behind this "Prosecco". Alberto and Marta Dalle Crode are Winemakers and Farmers. Alberto made this first wine under the guidance of an oenologist friend from the local university in Conegliano. This was a more controlled vinification start, but in 2014 and 2015, he let the grapes macerate on the skins for two days and did not use temperature control. The excellent results became the inspiration for developing Col Tamaríe as a full-time project.
Quite the blend grapes: Glera, Boschera, Perera, Blanchetta, Grapariol, verdiso, and Marzemina Bianca. Soft fizz we notably enjoy on the palate, citrus on the nose, notes of soft lime, grapefruit, citrus finish.
Such a huge hit for the Natty Wine Bubble fans!

A Little More...
In 2001, Alberto and his mother founded the Vigna San Lorenzo with the intention to produce grapes for local winemakers. When they arrived, the vineyards were filled with old Merlot vines as well as several local grape varieties used to make Prosecco wines. Many of the old vines were sick and required explanting and replanting as pointedout by an old farmer in the village that Albertostarted to take mentorship from.
