    Winemaker Notes

    Pale straw yellow. The bouquet on the nose is delicately sweet, with floral and fruity notes of citrus and apricots, together with fresh minty sensations/ On the palate it is aromatic, full-bodied, balanced, with delicate acidity and sweetness from the residual sugar.

    Ideal with appetizers or with desserts, especially pastries.

    Castello di Luzzano, Italy
    Castello di Luzzano Winery Image
    The Luzzano and Romito have been in the family of Maria Giulia and her sister, Giovannella Fugazza for nearly a century. Documents citing the excellent wines of Luzzano have been found dating as far as the 12th century. The property straddles the border between Emilia and Lombardia an area known for the variety and quality of its wines, with one vineyard in the Colli Piacentini DOC and the other in the Oltrepo Pavese.

    Archaeologists have found evidence that wines existed in this part of the region during the Roman Empire and were cultivated intensively to produce wine. Soils in the Piacentino part of the estate are sandy clay and marl. The Pavese produces distinctive premium wines with color, taste and aromas that have earned widespread acclaim. Research and experimentation with grafting and new varieties has enabled Luzzano to develop extremely successful clones, particularly with Barbera and Bonarda typical kind of the region.

    Named “Oenotria” by the ancient Greeks for its abundance of grapevines, Italy has always had a culture virtually inextricable from wine. Wine grapes grow in every region throughout Italy—a long and narrow boot-shaped peninsula extending into the Mediterranean.

    Italian Wine Regions

    Naturally, most Italian wine regions enjoy a Mediterranean climate and a notable coastline, if not coastline on all borders, as is the case with the islands of Sicily and Sardinia. The Alps in the northern regions of Valle d'Aosta, Lombardy and Alto Adige create favorable conditions for cool-climate grape varieties. The Apennine Mountains, extending from Liguria in the north to Calabria in the south, affect climate, grape variety and harvest periods throughout. Considering the variable terrain and conditions, it is still safe to say that most high quality viticulture in Italy takes place on picturesque hillsides.

    Italian Grape Varieties

    Italy boasts more indigenous grape varieties than any other country—between 500 and 800, depending on whom you ask—and most Italian wine production relies upon these native grapes. In some regions, international varieties have worked their way in, but are declining in popularity, especially as younger growers take interest in reviving local varieties. Most important are Sangiovese, reaching its greatest potential in Tuscany, as well as Nebbiolo, the prized grape of Piedmont, producing single varietal, age-worthy Piedmontese wines. Other important varieties include Corvina, Montepulciano, Barbera, Nero d’Avola and of course the white wines, Trebbiano, Verdicchio and Garganega. The list goes on.

    Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
